Recently, the external quantum efficiency and lifetime of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) have been dramatically upgraded due to development of organic materials and device structure. In particular, an intramolecular or intermolecular complex based on thermally activated delayed fluorescent (TADF) materials has greatly contributed to improving OLED device performance. Although high external quantum efficiency has been the main objective of the development of TADF materials as hosts and emitters, recent interest has been directed towards the lifetime of TADF-material-based OLEDs. For the past several years, remarkable advances in the lifetime of phosphorescent and TADF OLEDs have been made using TADF materials as hosts or emitters in the emitting layer. Therefore, since TADF materials are useful as both hosts and emitters for a long lifetime, this work discusses the recent progress made in developing TADF materials for long-lifetime OLEDs.
