Benzofuranyl benzene incorporating naphthyl (phenothiazinyl or dimesitylboryl) entities via meta-conjugation have been synthesized. These compounds exhibit bipolar transport characteristic with mobilities in the range of 10-5 to 10-4 cm2/V s at an electric field of 4 × 105 V/cm. The compounds with two naphthyl or dimesitylboryl substituents emit in the violet region with good solution quantum yields. The OLEDs fabricated from the benzofuranyl/dimethylboryl, benzofuranyl/naphthyl and benzofuranyl/dimethylboryl/phenathiazine derivatives have maximum external efficiencies of 1.01%, 1.41% and 3.14%, respectively.
