5CzBN, light-blue TADF fluorescence emitter

High-purity (>99.0%) and available online for priority dispatch

5CzBN, penta-carbazolylbenzonitrile, is sterically hindered due to the five bulky electron-donating carbazolyl groups on the benzene ring struggling for space. It is a light-blue TADF fluorescence emitter widely used for highly efficient TADF-OLED devices.
