Three highly efficient blue thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) emitters,2SPAc-HPM, 2SPAc-MPM and 2SPAc-PPM, have been synthesised based on pyrimidine(PM), 2-methylpyrimidine (MPM) and 2-phenylpyrimidine (PPM) as the acceptor and 10Hspiro[acridan-9,9'-fluorene] (2SPAc) as the donor moiety, respectively. With the appropriatemolecular design, these emitters successfully achieve small singlet-triplet splitting energies for efficient reverse intersystem crossing, and exhibit high photoluminescence quantum yields. As a result, the TADF OLEDs based on 2SPAc-HPM, 2SPAc-MPM and 2SPAc-PPM emit blue light peaking at 479-489 nm and generate the very high the external quantum efficiency of 25.56%, 24.34% and 31.45%, respectively. The 2SPAc-PPM based TADF OLEDs also is one of the very few blue TADF emitters with the external quantum efficiency of more than 30% and is the best OLED performance among the pyrimidine-based TADF emitters.
