Setting up spatially separated HOMO and LUMO regions in a non-Kekule structured trinuclear Ir(III)-Ru(II)-Ir(III) system and using oxidative-reduction electrochemiluminescence leads to emissions that are not detected in photoluminescence. Moreover, the new design allows tuning of the wavelength of emission in a stepless fashion as a function of the selected potential range.
