Zeochem offers a large selection of deuterated reagents, which are used in the field of deuterium labeled organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs). Our production capacity allows them to support customer projects from research & development to market introduction and beyond.
The focus for deuterium labeled OLEDs is on blue color molecules, which is the most delicate component in this technology. A deuterated labeled OLED is a small molecule OLED, also known as SMOLED with a molecular weight < 1000, in which one or more of the hydrogen atoms are replaced by their heavier isotope deuterium. Depending on the molecule, there’s a partial selective replacement with deuterium synthesis or a nonselective hydrogen/deuterium exchange which is necessary. Because the isotope effect results in stronger bonds, the molecules may have a significantly longer lifetime and a brilliant deep blue color.
As an independent company not owned by any electronics company, we are the perfect partner for your projects.
