Abstract© the Partner Organisations 2014. A series of robust, bulky and strongly emissive platinum(ii) complexes supported by tetradentate O^N^C^N ligands with tert-butyl groups (1-4), a bridging tertiary amine (5) or a biphenyl group with a spiro linkage (6) at the periphery of the [O^N^C^N] ligand scaffold have been prepared. Their photophysical properties were examined by absorption and emission spectroscopy, density functional theory calculations, and ultra-fast time-resolved emission measurements. These complexes display emission quantum yields of up to 95%, with emission maxima λmax in the range of 522 to 570 nm, and have a good thermal stability of up to Td > 423 °C. Notably, the kq values of 4-6 are in the range of 8.5 × 106 to 2.0 × 107 mol-1 dm3 s-1, smaller than those (∼108 to 109 mol-1 dm3 s-1) of other reported Pt(ii) complexes. The bulky groups at the periphery of the [O^N^C^N] ligand disfavour intermolecular interactions and hence excimer formation in solutions. These complexes are good light-emitting materials (dopants) for OLEDs, since the triplet-triplet annihilation (TTA) and concentration quenching effect arising from intermolecular interactions can be minimized even at a high dopant concentration. The efficiency of the devices fabricated with 4-6 increased with dopant concentration up to a high level of 10% with no extra emitting component or significant shift in the CIE observed. The maximum power efficiency (PE) values achieved for the 5 (yellow-emitting) and 6 (green-emitting) based devices were 118 and 126 lm W-1, respectively. These PE values are the highest among the reported Pt(ii)-OLEDs and comparable to those of the best reported Ir(iii)-OLEDs without the out-coupling technique. Complex 7 is structurally analogous to, but less bulky than 3-6 and is prone to giving excimer emission in the solid state. A high PE of up to 55.5 lm W-1 and external quantum efficiency of up to 25.1% have been realized in the white OLEDs fabricated with 7 as a single emitting material. These values are comparable with those of the best reported WOLEDs based on a single emitting material. This journal is
