2,2'-bis(4-(carbazol-9-yl)phenyl)-biphenyl (BCBP) has a bridged biphenyl structure with two electron rich carbazolyl pendant moieties. The bridged structure is believed to enhance the conjugation and raise the HOMO energy level, facilitating hole-injection and leading to low turn-on voltages in organic photoelectroluminescent devices.
Comparing with 4,4′-(bis(9-carbazolyl))biphenyl (CBP), a well known host material, BCBP is thermally more stable with a high glass transition temperature (Tg) of 173 °C, while CBP has a relatively low Tgof 69 °C.
Carbazolyl groups are largely embedded in both fluorescent and phosphorescent host materials because of their higher triplet energy levels and higher hole mobility. Like the rest of the family members such as CDBP and mCBP, BCBP is commonly used as host material for blue, green, red phosphorescent dopants for highly efficient OLED devices.
