The utilization of phosphorescent metal cluster complexes as new types of emitting materials in organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) is becoming an alternative and viable approach for achieving high-efficiency electroluminescence. We report herein the design of cationic PtAu2 cluster complexes with differently positioned 9-phenylcarbazole-acetylides to serve as phosphorescent emitters in OLEDs. The rigid structures of PtAu2 complexes cause intense phosphorescence with quantum yields of over 85%, which originates from (3)[π(phenylcarbazole-acetylide) → π*(dpmp)] ligand-to-ligand and (3)[π(phenylcarbazole-acetylide) → p/s(PtAu2)] ligand-to-metal charge-transfer triplet excited states. When 8 wt % PtAu2 is doped to blended host materials of TCTA and OXD-7 (2:1 weight ratio) as light-emitting layers, solution-processed OLEDs give a current efficiency of 78.2 cd A(-1) and an external quantum efficiency (EQE) of 21.5% at a practical luminance of 1029 cd m(-2) with a slow efficiency roll-off upon increasing luminance. This represents the best device performance and the highest efficiency recorded at practical luminance for solution-processed OLEDs.
