Abstract

The electronic properties of four new organic compounds (I-IV) were studied theoretically for application as hole-transporting materials in electroluminescent (EL) devices. We investigated theoretically, the effect of increasing number of pyrrole rings between 4-azainole end moieties. The time dependent density functional theory (TD-DFT/ B3LYP/6-31G(d)) calculated energy gap (E-gap) of the studied compounds decreases in the order of I>II>III>IV; the significant reduction of E-gap of compound IV with 2.7 eV compared to 4.27 eV of compound II is due to the bridging effect of C=C(CO2H)2 which remove the steric effect, caused by high dihedral angle between two central pyrrole rings in the non-bridged II. Compound IV possess low-lying lowest occupied molecular orbital(LUMO) energy levels and low lying highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) energy levels, may be promising candidate for hole transporting and bright blue to red emitting layer in organic light emitting device (OLED) fabrication.
