Deuterated Reagents for Electronics

OLED – AMOLED and PhOLED

Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are extensively used in devices such as television and mobile phone screens. OLEDs are generally made of thin layers of organic molecules between two electrodes. The devices emit light when an electric current flows through them.
 
Until a few years ago, the biggest technical problem for OLEDs was the limited lifetime of the organic materials, typically half that of LCD, LED or PDP, as heat and oxidation generated during operation contribute to the instability of the chemicals. The problem was solved by deuterating some of the organic molecules incorporated in OLEDs, which increases the lifetime of the device by a factor of five to 20 without significantly affecting other properties of the device.
 
Another application of deuteration in this field is the neutron reflectometry along with deuteration of specific molecular layers that has become the key method for the study of the morphology, diffusion and interfacial behavior in organic thin-film semiconducting devices.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Do you have a D2O Recovery Program?

Yes, we do have a D2O Recovery Program. If you have D2O (Deuterium Oxide) currently that you would like to return for a potential credit, please visit our website and complete the necessary form or contact your customer service at 1-800-322-1174 (North America) or 1-978-749-8000 (International).

What do I do if I need multiple vials or carboys when returning D2O for the D2O Recovery Program?

If you have more than ~16L you may require multiple Carboys, please just ask. 

When returning D2O for the D2O Recovery Program should I fill the carboy to the top?

No! Fill the bulk carboy container ~80% full. Most are shipped by FedEx Air, and if full, the carboy is likely to expand and possibly rupture the container.
