Novel electroluminescent materials combining three functionalities were used as active layers in lightemitting
diodes. These functionalities are brought about by the presence of three moieties: diphenylstylbeneamines,
for hole transport, quinoxaline, for electron-transport, and a dehydroabietic acid methyl
ester, to prevent crystallisation. The devices prepared with these materials and with magnesium cathodes
show efficiencies up to 0.03 cd/A, which is about one order of magnitude higher than the efficiency
obtained with the related diphenylstylbeneamines
