A counterion study of a series of [Cu(P^P)(N^N)][A] compounds with bis(phosphane) and 6-methyl and 6,6′-dimethyl-substituted 2,2′-bipyridine ligands for light-emitting electrochemical cells

The choice of counterion in heteroleptic copper(I) luminophores for LECs has a critical effect on the photoluminescence quantum yields of the solid materials, and on the device figures-of-merit.
