Three strongly emissive Cu(i) complexes [Cu(tBupzmpy)(POP)]BF4(1), [Cu(Phpzmpy)(POP)]BF4(2) and [Cu(Adpzmpy)(POP)]BF4(3) (tBupzmpy = 2-(5-(tert-butyl)-1H-pyrazol-3-yl)-6-methylpyridine, Phpzmpy = 2-methyl-6-(5-phenyl-1H-pyrazol-3-yl)pyridine, Adpzmpy = 2-(5-((3R,5R)-adamantan-1-yl)-1H-pyrazol-3-yl)-6-methylpyridine, and POP = bis[2-(diphenylphosphino)phenyl]ether) were synthesized and characterized. These complexes exhibit bright bluish-green photoluminescence in the solid state with quantum yields of 91% (1), 71% (2) and 77% (3) and lifetimes of 13.4 μs (1), 32. Read More
