Bis(2-(2-hydroxyphenyl)benzothiazolate) zinc (II), Zn(BTZ)2, is one of the most studied high efficient electroluminescent material. It is also has been widely used as an excellent electron transporting materials in OLEDs .
Zn(BTZ)2 exhibits an unusual broad electroluminescent (EL) emission and for this reason, a single-emitting component for white light emitting diodes can be fabricated by using Zn(BTZ)2 as emitting layer material . It has also been reported that with an insertion of rubrene layer, the purify of the white light emitting of Zn(BTZ)2 can be improved .
