Intermolecular π–π interactions are important in OLEDs and other organic electronic materials and have been extensively studied over the last 20 years; however, intramolecular π–π interactions have not been investigated as deeply. This hot paper reports a structure–property relationship study into intramolecular excimer emission arising from organic molecules used as a blue light source in SMOLEDs.
