4CzIPN, highest PLQY compared to its isomers
Available online in sensible quantities for priority dispatch
4CzIPN, namely 1,2,3,5-Tetrakis(carbazol-9-yl)-4,6-dicyanobenzene, has a fully substituted benzene ring with two cyano groups as electron accepting units at meta-positions to each other and four carbazolyl groups as electron donating units. It is a powerful metal-free organophotocatalyst and also a typical donor–acceptor fluorophore.
4CzIPN from Ossila was used in the high-impact paper (IF 15.72), A comprehensive picture of roughness evolution in organic crystalline growth: the role of molecular aspect ratio, J. Dull et al., Mater. Horiz., 9, 2752 (2022); DOI: 10.1039/d2mh00854h.
Out of its three isomers, 4CzIPN has the highest photo-luminescence quantum efficiency (PLQY) of above 90%. This is due to the wide dispersion the highest-occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) over the donor moieties. Relatively short excited-state lifetime of delayed emission was reported. Additionally, higher external quantum efficiency (EQE) was observed by using 4CzIPN as an emitter in TADF-OLED devices.
Despite its low solubility in most of the aromatic solvents, 4CzIPN is also solution-processable in solvents such as dichloromethane or chloroform. This is due to the structure distortion of the carbazole units caused by steric hindrance.
