The emission properties of three 4-azafluorenone and five new α-carboline fluorophores in both solution and thin solid films were investigated. Fluorescence of the azafluorenone is clearly enhanced in thin solid films due to the presence of phenyl/biphenyl rotors, and these derivatives can be classified as green Aggregation-Induced Emission luminogens (AIEgens) with a non-emissive heteroaromatic core structure. Compared to azafluorenones, emission of α-carbolines is hypsochromically shifted to the blue region of the electromagnetic spectrum, and most of these derivatives exhibit strong violet-blue fluorescence in both solution and thin solid film layers. Further, the effective mobility and electroluminescence of new α-carbolines were investigated in prepared organic field-effect transistors and organic light-emitting diodes, respectively.
