Organic thermally activated delayed fluorescence materials (TADF) have been widely investigated due to their impressive electronic properties and applied potential for the third generation of organic light-emitting diodes (OLED). We present organic TADF material based on the strained benzoguanidine donor (4BGIPN) and compare it with the benchmark carbazole-based material (4CzIPN). Extended π-conjugation in 4BzIPN material results in yellow luminescence at 525 nm with a fast radiative rate of 1.15x10-6 s-1 and photoluminescence quantum yield of 46% in methylcyclohexane solution. Such a nitrogen-rich 4BGIPN material has a significantly stabilized highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) at –6.4 eV while the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) at -4.0 eV, indicating potential suitability for application as the electron transport layer or TADF class III emitter in OLEDs.
