Diphenylamino- and triazole-endcapped fluorene derivatives which show a wide energy band gap, a high fluorescence quantum yield and high stability have been synthesized and characterized. Single-layer electroluminescent devices of these fluorene derivatives exhibited efficient deep blue to greenish blue emission at low driving voltage. The single-layer OLED of PhN-OF(1)-TAZ shows a maximum current efficiency of 1.54 cd/A at 20 mA cm-2 with external quantum efficiency (EQE) of 2.0% and CIE coordinates of (0.153, 0.088) in deep blue region, while the single-layer device of oligothienylfluorene PhN-OFOT-TAZ shows a maximum brightness of 7524 cd/m2 and a maximum current efficiency of 2.9 cd/A with CIE coordinates of (0.20, 0.40) in greenish blue.
