We have studied the photophysical properties and energy transfer processes in tris(phenylquinoxalines ) (TPQ). TPQs emit blue fluorescence with a maximum at 2.9 eV as well as green phosphorescence at 2.2 eV. When doped with a phosphorescent dye efficient energy transfer takes place from the excited singlet and triplet state of the TPQ host to the guest molecules. The mechanism of energy transfer can be understood in the frame of Förster's theory of dipole-dipole interaction. Besides the interesting photophysical properties, TPQs are also very efficient electron transport materials. Red light-emitting diodes utilizing doped TPQ as emitter and electron transport layer have been prepared and electroluminescence properties investigated.
