Ir(dmpq)2(acac), highly efficient red phosphorescent emitter

A dopant material for OLEDs and available online for priority dispatch


Bis(2-(3,5-dimethylphenyl)quinoline-C2,N')(acetylacetonato)iridium(III), also known as Ir(dmpq)2(acac), is a highly efficient red phosphorescent emitter that is employed as a dopant material in organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs).

Compared with Ir(phq)2acac, Ir(dmpq)2(acac) has a higher quantum efficiency. The dmpq ligand is methylated version of the phq (2-phenylquinoline) ligand, with methyl substitutions on the phenyl group. It is believed that the higher efficiency is a result of this methylation of the phq ligand.
