Chemical Structure

chemical structure T2t, 2,4,6-tris(biphenyl-3-yl)-1,3, 5-triazine
Chemical Structure of 2,4,6-tris(biphenyl-3-yl)-1,3,5-triazine (T2T).



2,4,6-tris(biphenyl-3-yl)-1,3,5-triazine (T2T) is a family member of triazine.  It has one electron-withdrawing triazine core and three electron-rich biphenyl groups. It has been widely used as a host material for phosphorescent OLEDs and electron transport layer material (ETL) for TADF-OLEDs.

Due to its electron-deficient nature, T2T and its derivatives are also used as acceptor materials to form exciplexes in blue-emission TADF devices.
