Abstract

A novel class of benzo[1,2-b:4,3-b ']dithienyl (BDT) silanes1-3in which a tetrahedral silicon atom connects two BDT units is developed as high triplet energy 3D-host. The photophysical and electrochemical properties of these structures are investigated, demonstrating that the peculiar features of the constituting BDT units are preserved in the corresponding silanes. All compounds display deep UV absorption (E-g = 4.10-3.52 eV) and fluorescent emission (300-400 nm for1and2, and 350-450 nm for3). Phosphorescence is observed at low temperature and the respectiveT(1)states set at 2.65, 2.59, and 2.25 eV. Emission efficiency in solution is as high as 0.18 in3. Compound1crystallizes in two monoclinic structures without relevant intra-inter-molecular contacts; both display similar and intriguing aggregation induced emission-like deep blue emission (390-397 nm) with quantum yield up to 13%. A blue and a green emissive organic light emitting diode devices are realized using silane1as semiconductive host material. The perfect sensitization of the green Ir(ppy)(3)emitter results in a device which nicely compares, in terms of efficiency, with a standard one. The blue FIrpic emitter is instead only partially sensitized on account of the too closed triplets.
