Phosphorescence switch and logic gate of iridium(iii) complexes containing a triarylboron moiety triggered by fluoride and an electric field†
A new concept of phosphorescence switch and logic gate has been proposed based on iridium(III) complexes containing triarylboron moieties. The phosphorescence of the complexes can be quenched by F− through the formation of B–F bonds. Interestingly, the B–F bonds can be ruptured under an electric field, restoring the phosphorescence.
