Synthesis, Characterization and Luminescent Properties of Anthracen- or Pyrene-Based Coumarin Derivatives
Three anthracen- or pyrene-based coumarin derivatives have been successfully synthesized and characterized by EA, IR and 1H NMR. The photophysical properties of all derivatives were investigated by UV-Vis and photoluminescence spectroscopic analysis. Their thermal stabilities were demonstrated by TGA. These compounds exhibit strong blue mission under ultraviolet light excitation and have potential possible to explore organic electroluminescent materials. The vacuum-processed doped devices with a configuration of ITO/TAPC (20 nm)/TBADN: b1 (x wt%, 30 nm)/TPBi (50 nm)/Liq (2 nm)/Al (150 nm) was fabricated, in which the devices based on b1 exhibited the best electroluminescence performance with a maximum brightness of 8165 cd/m2 and a maximum luminous efficiencies of 6.13 cd/A and a maximum external quantum efficiency (EQE) of 2.75%.
