mcpsob chemical structure
Chemical structure of mCPSOB; CAS No. 1374770-41-8.



9-(3-(9H-Carbazol-9-yl)-5-(phenylsulfonyl)phenyl)-9H-carbazole (mCPSOB) is an ambipolar host thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) material containing two electron-donating carbazole groups and one electron-accepting diphenylsulfonyl group.

mCPSOB has a high energy level of the triplet state (3.02 eV), which suppresses
triplet exciton quenching and results in higher external quantum efficiency (EQE). Higher triplet energy level also makes it ideal as a host material for blue/deep blue dopants.

Compared to mCPmCPSOB has a higher glass transition temperature (Tg = 140 °C). In return, this can prevent mCPSOB from crystallising during operation
and reduces the possibility of phase separation - thus significantly improving device thermal and morphological stability.
