Neutral Pt(II) complexes bearing tridentate dianionic 2,6-bis(1H-1,2,4- triazol-5-yl)pyridine and ancillary alkyl-substituted pyridine ligands have been synthesized and characterized. They show bright green emission, reaching 73% photoluminescence quantum yield in deareated chloroform solution, which can be assigned to a predomi- nantly metal-perturbed ligand-centered phosphorescence. We have followed two strate- gies to preserve the spectral purity of the monomeric species by varying the substituents on the chromophoric or on the ancillary ligands. However, variations in the substitution patterns only modestly affected the radiative and radiationless deactivation rate constants of the monomers. Photophysical and electrochemical properties have been measured for all the complexes and correlated with calculations using time-dependent density func- tional theory. The electroluminescence spectra of the brightest, nonaggregating derivative showed a better color purity than that of iridium(III) tris(phenylpyridine), thus proving that aggregation was hindered in a running electroluminescent device.
