Abstract

A new class of gold(III) complexes with saturated poly(benzyl ether) dendrons has been synthesized, characterized, and applied as phosphorescent dopants in the fabrication of solution-processable organic light-emitting devices (OLEDs). The incorporation of the poly(benzyl ether) dendron into the cyclometalated gold(III) center can effectively perturb the packing of the molecules and minimizes the intermolecular interactions for suppressing excimeric emission. In addition, blue-green-emitting OLEDs can be realized, representing the first example of a blue-green-emitting device based on saturated dendrimer containing alkynylgold(III) complexes. Taking advantage of the diverse and well-developed synthetic routes for saturated dendrons, this work provides a simple means to develop a new class of gold(III) complexes emitting in the blue region.
