chemical structure of 4CzIPN
Chemical Structure of 2,4,5,6-Tetra(9H-carbazol-9-yl)isophthalonitrile (4CzIPN).



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.
