Applications

Bis(2,4-difluorophenylpyridinato)-tetrakis(1-pyrazolyl)borate iridium(III), FIr6, is commonly used as a blue emitter material for OLED devices.

In terms of colour purity and quality, FIr6 is more practical for use in full-colour display devices and lighting applications compared to the more widely-used blue phosphorescent emitter, FIrPicFIr6 shows deeper blue emissions with major vibronic peaks at 458 and 489 nm,  while FIrPic has major vibronic emission peaks at 475 and 500 nm.
