Emission wavelength tuning of thermally activated delayed fluorescence from green to orange in solid state films is demonstrated. Emission tuning occurs by stabilization of the intramolecular charge transfer state between a phenoxazine (PXZ) donor unit and 2,4,6-triphenyl-1,3,5-triazine (TRZ) acceptor unit separated by a large twist angle. The emission wavelengths of mono-, bis-, and tri-PXZ-substituted TRZ exhibit a gradual red shift while maintaining a small energy gap between the singlet and triplet excited states. An organic light-emitting diode containing a tri-PXZ-TRZ emitter exhibited a maximum external quantum efficiency of 13.3 ± 0.5% with yellow-orange emission.
