SPPO1, blue phosphorescent host
Host material for efficient host-to guest energy transfer in OLED devices
SPPO1, 9,9-Spirobifluoren-2-yl-diphenyl-phosphine oxide has a spirobifluorene structure with an electron deficient polar diphenyl-phosphine oxide moiety attached. The polarity in the P=O double bond can lead to a high triplet energy state, which is highly desirable in host materials for an efficient host-to guest energy transfer in an OLED.
SPPO1 can either be used as blue phosphorescent host or, due to its electron deficient nature, in OLED devices as an electron transport/hole blocking layer material. As a phosphorescent host, SPPO1 based blue PHOLEDs show much higher quantum efficiency than the well-known mCP based blue PHOLEDs.
