Photophysically Active Platinum(II) NHC Complexes

Abstract.  During the last decade luminescent platinum(II) complexes have been investigated as functional molecular materials for the potential application as Phosphorescent, triplet emitting metal complexes in Organic Light Emitting Diodes (PhOLEDs). Depending on the design of the ligands in the square planar platinum(II) complexes efficient phosphorescence has been observed. We recently synthesized a new class of photophysically active complexes, which will be presented in the talk. These cyclometalated platinum(II) complexes with donating N-heterocyclic carbenes show interesting photophysical properties and show a high potential for the application as triplet emitters in organic light emitting devices.
