TSPO1, fluorescent host or EBL material in TADF-OLED devices

Suitable for efficient electron injection and hole blocking

TSPO1, diphenyl[4-(triphenylsilyl)phenyl]phosphine oxide, has a structure of triphenylsilane connecting triphenyl phosphine oxide. Comparing with UGH-2, TSPO1 has large permanent dipole moment due to the polar phosphine oxide group and its asymmetric structure. 

TSPO1 from Ossila was used in the high-impact paper (IF 14.92)

TSPO1 from Ossila was used in the high-impact paper (IF 14.92), High efficiency blue organic light-emitting diodes with below-bandgap electroluminescence, M. Vasilopoulou et al., Nat. Commun., 12, 4868 (2021); DOI: 10.1038/s41467-021-25135-z.

With a sufficiently high triplet energy  (ET ) of 3.36 eV, TSPO1 can be used as fluorescent host or exciton blocking layer materials in TADF-OLED devices. Also with low lying LUMO (ELUMO = 2.52 eV) and HOMO (EHOMO = 6.79 eV), TSPO1 is suitable for efficient electron injection and hole blocking, owing to the electron deficient nature of diphenylphosphine oxide moiety it bears.
