Thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) and TADF-organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) systems are being given increasing attention in research nowadays. Much more work has been done for organic-based materials in this field, but the use of TADF organometallic systems has also emerged in recent years. In particular, TADF-based gold compounds have not been particularly well-explored, with a higher number of examples of Au(I)-molecules and fewer for the higher oxidation state Au(III) derivatives. Nevertheless, the novelty and observed results deserve attention. A careful analysis has been performed in this review by classifying the reported compounds into two different groups regarding the oxidation state of the metal, and within each group, the ancillary ligands. Specific examples to illustrate their potential applications are included in the different sections. View Full-Text
