Abstract

We applied organic nanostructures based on thermally activated delayed fluorescent (TADF) emitters for singlet oxygen generation. Due to the extremely small energy gaps between the excited singlet states (S1) and triplet states (T1) of these heavy-metal-free organic nanostructures, intersystem conversion between S1 and T1 can occur easily. This strategy also works well for exciplex-type TADF emitters prepared by mixing suitable donors and acceptors which have no TADF characteristics themselves.
