Abstract

Considerable studies have been made on iridium complexes during the past 10 years, due to their high quantum efficiency, color tenability, and potential applications in various areas. In this chapter, we review the synthesis, structure, and photophysical properties of luminescent Ir complexes, as well as their applications in organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), biological labeling, sensitizers of luminescence, and chemosensors.
