2-Bromotriphenylene, also known as 2-bromobenzo[9,10]phenanthrene, is an OLED intermediate for the synthesis of hole transport layer (HTL) materials or host materials. It is electron rich and has a planar structure in electroluminescence devices.

2-Bromotriphenylene can also be used as an intermediate to be embedded as a fluorescent probe for sensors and biomedical applications.
