With the aim of achieving high-performance thermally activated delayed fluorescence, a series of trioxoazatriangulene derivatives are systematically developed by modifying the donor substituents. The emission colors are shifted from green to greenish-yellow and to yellow with rather broad spectral widths of 70–95 nm by introducing carbazole, triphenylamine, or diphenylamine donor units, indicating that each emission originates from a charge-transfer transition. On the other hand, the trioxoazatriangulene modified with three diphenylamines shows orange emission with a narrow emission spectrum (45 nm), suggesting that the transition mainly originates from a multiple resonance effect.
