The host in phosphrescent organic light emitting devices (PhOLEDs), showing the thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) charateristic, can effectively overcome the efficiency roll-off. Herein, six bipolar compounds with donor-π-acceptor (D-π-A) and D-π-A-π-D structures have been synthesized using 1,2,4-triazole derivative (TAZ) as an acceptor and phenothiazine (PTZ), phenoxazine (PXZ), and 9, 9-dimethylacridane (DMAC) as donors. The molecular structures were confirmed by 1H NMR, 13C NMR and X-ray single-crystal diffractions. The large steric hindrance endows these molecules with typical TADF features, including the small singlet-triplet energy splitting (Delta E-ST) of 0.08–0.30 eV and completely spatially separate highest occupied molecular orbitals (HOMO) and the lowest unoccupied molecular orbitals (LUMO) electron densities. The PhOLEDs hosted by these novel TADF materials display excellent performances with low efficiency roll-off.
