Non-dispersive and fast electron transport was realized for an amorphous, vapor deposited film of 2,5-bis(2',2''-bipyridin-6-yl)-1,1-dimethyl-3,4-diphenylsilacyclopentadiene in ambient and inert atmospheres. An electron mobility of 2×10−4 cm2/Vs was measured by time-of-flight at an electric field of 6×105 V/cm. This mobility is more than two orders of magnitude larger than that of the most widely used electron transporter, tris(quinolin-8-olato) aluminum (III), in molecular organic light-emitting devices (MOLEDs). Another silole derivative, namely 1,2-bis (1-methyl-2,3,4,5,-tetraphenylsilacyclopentadienyl)ethane, exhibits bright fluorescent blue-green light with an absolute quantum yield close to 100 % in the solid state. MOLEDs composed of stacked neat films of these two silole derivatives and a hole transporter show a significantly low operating voltage and an external quantum efficiency of 4.8 %, close to the theoretical limit.
