Covalent Organic Frameworks (COFs) Quaterphenyl Ligand

A rigid rod-like diamine bridging ligand linker for covalent polymeric frameworks (CPFs) in application of light emitting diodes, adsorption of polyfluoroalkyls (PFAs)

Specifications | MSDS | Literature and Reviews

[1,1':4',1'':4'',1'''-Quaterphenyl]-4,4'''-diamine (QPDA) is a rod-like linear structure with amino groups on both ends, a match with two striking ends. [1,1':4',1'':4'',1'''-quaterphenyl]-4,4'''-diamine is commonly used as a precursor for constructing hole extraction layer or covalent organic frameworks (COFs).

4P-NPD, derived from [1,1':4',1'':4'',1'''-quaterphenyl]-4,4'''-diamine, has been successfully used as blue emission layer, efficient excitation blocking, hole extraction layer material in OLED, perovskite, and organic solar cells. By harvesting triplet excitons from the fluorescent blue emitter 4P-NPD, white OLED based on Ir(MDQ)2(acac):4P-NPD as the emissive layer demonstrates strongly reduced roll-off efficiency with an external power efficiency (EQE) of 24.1%,  and a power efficiency of 49.3 lm W-1 at a luminance of 1000 cd m-2.

Covalent organic frameworks based on [1,1':4',1'':4'',1'''-quaterphenyl]-4,4'''-diamine as the rod-like linker has larger pore sizes for highly effective adsorption and removal of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from water.
