Inorg Chem. 2016 Nov 21;55(22):11908-11919. Epub 2016 Nov 7.To understand the effects of the terminal substituent at the diimine ligand on the photophysics of heteroleptic cationic Ir(III) complexes and to obtain Ir(III) complexes with extended ground-state absorption to the near-IR region while retaining the long-lived and broadly absorbing triplet excited state, we synthesized three heteroleptic cationic iridium(III) complexes bearing cyclometalating 1-phenylisoquinoline (C^N) ligands and substituted 6,6'-bis(7-R-fluoren-2-yl)-2,2'-biquinoline (N^N) ligand (R = H, NO2, or NPh2).
