We present a new class of blue circularly polarized luminescent emitters based on tetraarylaminoborane (TAAB) with considerable dissymmetry factor in the solid state. The chiral pendant 1-phenylethylamine in BN-RR and BN-SS imparts chirality to the core chromophore, resulting in circularly polarized luminescence signals (glum = 0.8 × 10-3) with a quantum yield of 33% in the crystalline state. This novel set of compounds also showcases intriguing thermally reversible piezochromism.
