Phosphorus-containing materials for organic electronics

Chem Asian J. 2014 May;9(5):1212-25. doi: 10.1002/asia.201301670. Epub 2014 Feb 20.


Phosphorus-based materials have received widespread attention in recent years, in particular as possible candidates for practical application in organic electronics. The geometry and electronic nature of phosphorus make it a favorable heteroatom for property tuning in order to obtain better performing organic electronics. This Focus Review discusses recent structural modifications and syntheses of phosphorus-based materials, illustrates property tuning at the same time, and highlights specific examples for device applications.
