  • Patent number: 8278238
    Abstract: The present invention relates to light emitting compounds, especially to triplett emitters suitable for electrooptical applications. Compounds according to the invention are organometallic complexes of a metal, preferably Ir, having a backbone of one five-membered ring that is linked to a five- or six-membered ring, by an intermediate six-membered ring. These compounds are suitable for adaptation to the emission of light in the UV to NIR range by adaptation of atoms or groups within at least one of the five-membered or six-membered ring structures.

  • Publication number: 20100145050
    Abstract: The present invention relates to chemical compounds that can be used in electrooptical applications. The electrically conductive and optical properties of these compounds, e.g. hole transporting, electron transporting and/or light emitting properties can be predetermined by substituting the core structure of these compounds with respective residues. The core structure (1) of the compounds according to the invention comprises two opposing aromatic moieties which are chemically bonded through an intermediate central atom. This central atom has a tetraedric configuration and therefore provides an orthogonal orientation to the organic moieties.
