  • Ultrapure colors are vital for displays to obtain the highly desired wide colorgamut. Till now, only boron-dipyrromethene derivatives (BODIPYs) have demonstrated ultrapure full-colors but suffer from low excitons utilization efficiency as dopants in organic light-emitting diodes.
  • A sterically hindered BODIPY-type dopant tPhBODIPYP with a bulk substituent on the meso-position is developed to suppress DET, exhibiting a high photo-luminance quantum yield of 98% and a smallfull width at half maximum of 28 nm.
  • A state-of-the-art EQE/power efficiency of 19.0%/85.7 lm W−1 are realized together with an ultrapure-green emission of CIE coordinates of (0.26, 0.67) and a long half-lifetime of 2947 h at an initial luminance of 1000 cd m−2..
