Two novel linear oligomers that can be solution-processed to form green organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are reported. Each oligomer has a donor-acceptor structure, incorporating a benzothiadiazole core with bifluorene arms attached at the 4- and 7-positions. Further electron donor behaviour is inferred from a terminal triphenylamine unit in Green 2. The resulting solution-processed OLEDs exhibited excellent performance, with a maximum luminance of 20 388 cd m-2 recorded for Green 2.
