Abstract

A new bipolar host material based on triphenylamine, fluorene and 1,2-diphenyl-1H-benzo[d]imidazole moieties, N,N-diphenyl-4-(9-phenyl-2-(4-(1-phenyl-1H-benzo[d]imidazol-2-yl)phenyl)-9H-fluoren-9-yl)aniline (DPPBIPFA), was designed and synthesized. The as-synthesized material was well characterized by1H and13C NMR spectroscopy, high-resolution mass spectrometry and thermogravimetric analysis, respectively. The photophysical and electrochemical properties of the material were also studied. The material exhibited an excellent thermal stability (Td= 475 °C), electrochemical stability and high triplet energy (2.68 eV). A green phosphorescent organic light-emitting diode (PhOLED) device based on DPPBIPFA as the host material and Ir(ppy)3as the dopant was fabricated, which displayed favorable electrophosphorescent properties with a turn-on voltage of 3.75 V, a maximum brightness of 1685 cd/m2and a maximum current efficiency of 4.26 cd/A.
