Tetraphenylethene: a versatile AIE building block for the construction of efficient luminescent materials for organic light-emitting diodes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Luminescent materials with efficient solid-state emissions are important for the advancement of optoelectronics. Recently, a new class of propeller-like luminogenic molecules with aggregation-induced emission (AIE) characteristics has drawn increasing research interest. Among them, tetraphenylethene (TPE) is an archetypal luminogen with a simple molecule structure but shows a splendid AIE effect. Utilizing TPE as a building block, an effective strategy to create efficient solid-state emitters is developed. In this feature article, we review mainly our recent work on the construction of luminogenic materials from TPE and present their applications in organic light-emitting diodes. The applicability of the synthetic strategy and the utility of the resulting materials are demonstrated.
