Herein, we report a material design of linear cis-quinacridone (cis-QA) derivatives as delayed fluorescence luminogens. In contrast to the widely studied traditional trans-isomers, the functionality of cis-QA and its derivatives remains unexplored and unclarified. Through combined computational and experimental investigations, we revealed that cis-QA derivatives can function as fascinating narrowband deep-blue delayed fluorescence emitters for organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). The best-performing deep-blue OLEDs incorporating these cis-QA luminogens achieved high external electroluminescence quantum efficiencies of up to 19.0 % and high color purity with chromaticity coordinates of (0.13, 0.14).
