Description

TECHNICAL FIELD

This application is a National Stage Entry of International Application No. PCT/KR2015/014131, filed on Dec. 22, 2015, and claims the benefit of and priority to Korean Application No. 10-2015-0013046, filed on Jan. 27, 2015, and Korean Application No. 10-2015-0039059, filed on Mar. 20, 2015 all of which are hereby incorporated by reference in their entirety for all purposes as if fully set forth herein.

The present specification relates to a novel metal complex and a color conversion film comprising the same. The present specification also relates to a backlight unit and a display device, comprising the color conversion film.

BACKGROUND ART

The existing light emitting diodes (LEDs) are obtained by mixing a green phosphor and a red phosphor with a blue light emitting diode or mixing a yellow phosphor and a blue-green phosphor with a UV light emission light emitting diode. However, in this method, it is difficult to control colors, and accordingly, the color rendition is not good. Therefore, the color gamut deteriorates.

In order to overcome the deterioration in color gamut and reduce the production costs, methods of implementing green and red colors have been recently attempted by using a method of producing a quantum dot in the form of a film and combining the same with a blue LED. However, cadmium-based quantum dots have safety problems, and the other quantum dots have much lower efficiencies than those of the cadmium-based quantum dots. Further, quantum dots have low stability against oxygen and water, and have a disadvantage in that the performance thereof significantly deteriorates when the quantum dots are aggregated. In addition, when quantum dots are produced, it is difficult to maintain the size thereof at a certain level, and thus, the production cost is high.

According to another exemplary embodiment of the present specification, provided is a color conversion film comprising: a resin matrix; and the compound represented by Chemical Formula 1, which is dispersed in the resin matrix.

The content of the compound represented by Chemical Formula 1 in the color conversion film may be within a range of 0.001 to 10 wt %.

The color conversion film may also comprise one of the compounds represented by Chemical Formula 1, and may comprise two or more. For example, the color conversion film may comprise one compound which emits green light among the compounds represented by Chemical Formula 1. As another example, the color conversion film may comprise one compound which emits red light among the compounds represented by Chemical Formula 1. As still another example, the color conversion film may comprise one compound which emits green light and one compound which emits red light among the compounds represented by Chemical Formula 1.

The color conversion film may further include an additional fluorescent material in addition to the compound represented by Chemical Formula 1. When a light source which emits blue light is used, it is preferred that the color conversion film comprises both a fluorescent material which emits green light and a fluorescent material which emits red light. Further, when a light source which emits blue light and green light is used, the color conversion film may comprise only a fluorescent material which emits red light. However, the color conversion film is not limited thereto, and even when a light source which emits blue light is used, the color conversion film may comprise only a compound which emits red light in the case where a separate film comprising a fluorescent material which emits green light is stacked. Conversely, even when a light source which emits blue light is used, the color conversion film may comprise only a compound which emits green light in the case where a separate film comprising a fluorescent material which emits red light is stacked.

The color conversion film may further comprise an additional layer comprising: a resin matrix; and a compound which is dispersed in the resin matrix and emits light having a wavelength different from that of the compound represented by Chemical Formula 1. The compound which emits light having a wavelength different from that of the compound represented by Chemical Formula 1 may also be the compound expressed as Chemical Formula 1, and may also be another publicly-known fluorescent material.

It is preferred that a material for the resin matrix is a thermoplastic polymer or a thermosetting polymer. Specifically, as the material for the resin matrix, it is possible to use a poly(meth)acrylic material such as polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), a polycarbonate (PC)-based material, a polystyrene (PS)-based material, a polyarylene (PAR)-based material, a polyurethane (TPU)-based material, a styrene-acrylonitrile (SAN)-based material, a polyvinylidenefluoride (PVDF)-based material, a modified-polyvinylidenefluoride (modified-PVDF)-based material, and the like.

According to an exemplary embodiment of the present specification, the color conversion film according to the above-described exemplary embodiments additionally comprises a light-diffusing particle. By dispersing a light-diffusing particle in the color conversion film instead of a light-diffusing film used in the related art in order to improve brightness, an attaching process may be omitted, and a higher brightness may be exhibited as compared to the case where a separate light-diffusing film is used.

As the light-diffusing particle, a resin matrix and a particle having a high refractive index may be used, and it is possible to use, for example, TiO2, silica, borosilicate, alumina, sapphire, air or another gas, air- or gas-filled hollow beads or particles (for example, air/gas-filled glass or polymer); polymer particles including polystyrene, polycarbonate, polymethylmethacrylate, acryl, methyl methacrylate, styrene, a melamine resin, a formaldehyde resin, or a melamine and formaldehyde resin, or any suitable combination thereof.

The particle diameter of the light-diffusing particle may be within a range of 0.1 μm to 5 μm, for example, within a range of 0.3 μm to 1 μm. The content of the light-diffusing particle may be determined, if necessary, and may be, for example, within a range of about 1 to 30 parts by weight based on 100 parts by weight of the resin matrix.

The color conversion film according to the above-described exemplary embodiments may have a thickness of 2 μm to 200 μm. In particular, the color conversion film may exhibit high brightness even in a small thickness of 2 μm to 20 μm. This is because the content of the fluorescent material molecule included in a unit volume is higher than that of a quantum dot.

In the color conversion film according to the above-described exemplary embodiments, a base material may be provided on a surface of the color conversion film. The base material may serve as a support when the color conversion film is produced. The kind of base material is not particularly limited, and the material or thickness of the base material is not limited as long as the base material is transparent and may serve as the support. Here, transparency means that the transmittance of visible light is 70% or more. For example, as the base material, a PET film may be used.

The above-described color conversion film may be produced by coating a resin solution, in which the above-described compound represented by Chemical Formula 1 is dissolved, on a base material and drying the resin solution, or extruding the above-described compound represented by Chemical Formula 1 together with the resin to produce a film.

Since the above-described compound represented by Chemical Formula 1 is dissolved in the resin solution, the compound represented by Chemical Formula 1 is uniformly distributed in the solution. This is different from a process of producing a quantum dot film, which requires a separate dispersing process.

For the resin solution in which the compound represented by Chemical Formula 1 is dissolved, the production method thereof is not particularly limited as long as the above-described compound represented by Chemical Formula 1 is present in a state where the resin is dissolved in the solution.

According to an example, the resin solution in which the compound represented by Chemical Formula 1 is dissolved may be produced by a method including: dissolving the compound represented by Chemical Formula 1 in a solvent to prepare a first solution, dissolving a resin in a solvent to prepare a second solution, and mixing the first solution with the second solution. When the first solution and the second solution are mixed, it is preferred to uniformly mix the solutions. However, the method is not limited thereto, and it is possible to use a method including: simultaneously adding a compound represented by Chemical Formula 1 and a resin to a solvent to dissolve the compound and the resin, a method including: dissolving the compound represented by Chemical Formula 1 in a solvent, and subsequently adding the resin thereto to dissolve the compound and the resin, a method including: dissolving the resin in a solvent, and subsequently adding the compound represented by Chemical Formula 1 thereto to dissolve the compound, and the like.

As the resin included in the solution, it is possible to use the above-described resin matrix material, a monomer which is curable by the resin matrix, or a mixture thereof. Examples of the monomer which is curable by the resin matrix include a (meth)acrylic monomer, and the monomer may be formed as a resin matrix material by UV curing. When a curable monomer is used as described above, an initiator required for curing may be further added, if necessary.

The solvent is not particularly limited, and is not particularly limited as long as the solvent may be removed by a subsequent drying while not adversely affecting the coating process. As a non-limiting example of the solvent, it is possible to use toluene, xylene, acetone, chloroform, various alcohol-based solvents, MEK (methyl ethyl ketone), MIBK (methyl isobutyl ketone), EA (ethyl acetate), butyl acetate, DMF (dimethylformamide), DMAc (dimethylacetamide), DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide), NMP (N-methyl-pyrrolidone), and the like, and a mixture of one or two or more thereof may be used. When the first solution and the second solution are used, the solvents included in each of the solutions may also be the same as or different from each other. Even when different solvents are used in the first solution and the second solution, it is preferred that these solvents have compatibility so as to be mixed with each other.

For the process of coating the resin solution, in which the compound represented by Chemical Formula 1 is dissolved, on a base material, a roll-to-roll process may be used. For example, the process may be performed by a process including: unwinding a base material from a roll on which the base material is wound, coating the resin solution, in which the compound represented by Chemical Formula 1 is dissolved, on one surface of the base material, drying the resin solution, and then winding the base material on the roll again. When the roll-to-roll process is used, it is preferred that the viscosity of the resin solution is determined within a range in which the process may be implemented, and the viscosity may be determined within a range of, for example, 200 to 2,000 cps.

As the coating method, various publicly-known methods may be used, and for example, a die coater may also be used, and it is also possible to use various bar-coating methods such as a comma coater and a reverse comma coater.

After the coating, a drying process is performed. The drying process may be performed under conditions required for removing the solvent. For example, a color conversion film comprising a fluorescent material comprising the compound represented by Chemical Formula 1 may be obtained at a desired thickness and concentration on a base material by drying the base material under a condition in which the solvent is sufficiently volatilized from an oven disposed adjacent to a coater in a direction in which the base material proceeds during the coating process.

When the monomer which is curable by the resin matrix is used as a resin included in the solution, curing, for example, UV curing may be performed before the drying or simultaneously with the drying.

When the compound represented by Chemical Formula 1 is extruded together with a resin to produce a film, an extrusion method known in the art may be used, and for example, a color conversion film may be produced by extruding the compound represented by Chemical Formula 1 together with a resin such as a polycarbonate (PC)-based resin, a poly(meth)acrylic resin, and a styrene-acrylonitrile (SAN)-based resin.

According to an exemplary embodiment of the present specification, in the color conversion film, a proactive film or a barrier film may be provided on at least one surface thereof. As the protective film and the barrier film, films known in the art may be used.

According to an exemplary embodiment of the present specification, provided is a backlight unit comprising the above-described color conversion film. The backlight unit may have a backlight unit configuration known in the art, except that the backlight unit comprises the color conversion film. FIG. 1 illustrates a schematic view of a backlight unit structure according to an example. The backlight unit according to FIG. 1 includes a branch-type light source 101, a reflective plate 102 which surrounds the light source, a light guide plate 103 which emits light directly from the light source, or guides light reflected from the reflective plate, a reflective layer 104 which is provided on one surface of the light guide plate, and a color conversion film 105 which is provided on a surface opposite to a surface facing the reflective layer of the light guide plate. A region indicated as grey in FIG. 1 is a light-dispersion pattern 106 of the light guide plate. The light incident inside the light guide plate has an irregular light distribution due to the repetition of an optical process such as reflection, total reflection, refraction, and transmission, and a 2-dimensional light dispersion pattern may be used in order to guide the light distribution to have a uniform luminosity. However, the scope of the present invention is not limited by FIG. 1, and not only a branch-type light source but also a direct-type light source may also be used as the light source, and the reflective plate or reflective layer may be omitted or may also be replaced with another configuration, if necessary, and an additional film, for example, a light-diffusing film, a light collecting film, a brightness enhancement film, and the like may be further provided, if necessary.

According to an exemplary embodiment of the present specification, provided is a display device comprising the backlight unit. The display device is not particularly limited as long as the device is a display device comprising a backlight unit, and may be included in a TV, a monitor of a computer, a laptop computer, a mobile phone, and the like.

Comparative Example 1

A first solution was produced by dissolving an organic phosphor having the structural formula in a reference document (Chem. Eur. J. 2011, 17, 3069-3073) in a solvent DMF. A second solution was produced by dissolving a thermoplastic resin PMMA in the solvent DMF. The first solution and the second solution were mixed such that the amount of the organic phosphor was 0.5 part by weight based on 100 parts by weight of PMMA, and the resulting mixture was uniformly mixed. The solid content of the mixed solution was 20 wt %, and the viscosity thereof was 200 cps. A color conversion film was produced by coating the solution on a PET base material, and then drying the solution. The brightness spectrum of the produced color conversion film was measured by a spectroradiometer (SR series manufactured by Topcon, Inc.). Specifically, the produced color conversion film was stacked on one surface of a light guide plate of a backlight unit comprising an LED blue backlight (a maximum light emission wavelength of 450 nm) and the light guide plate, a prism sheet and a DBEF film were stacked on the color conversion film, and then the brightness spectrum of the film was measured. An initial value was set, such that the luminosity of the blue LED light was 600 nit with or without the color conversion film when the brightness spectrum was measured.
