A red fluorescent material (2E,2'E)-3,3'-[4,4"-bis(dimethylamino)-1,1': 4',1 "-terphenyl-2',5'-diyl]bis[2-(2-thienyl)acrylonitrile] (ABCV-Th) was synthesized for use in organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) as the host emissive material. It has been reported some green and blue host emissive materials used in OLEDs revealed high device performance but, owing to concentration quenching, comparable red light emitting materials are still rare in OLEDs application. Non-doped organic light emitting diodes, with the structure of ITO/NPB/ABCV-Th (30 nm and 50 nm)/BCP/Alq3/Liq/Al were fabricated using ABCV-Th as the host emitter. The peak wavelength and full width at half maximum (FWHM) of electroluminescence (EL) were 629.5 nm and 68.5 nm, respectively. The maximum brightness and turn on voltage of the device were measured to be 1330 cd/m2 at 14.6 V and 3.4 V, respectively. The device exhibited authentic red emission (Commission Internationale De L'Eclairage (CIE(xy)) = 0.65, 0.34) which is almost close to the standard red (CIE(xy) = 0.67, 0.33) demanded by the national television system committee (NTSC).
