High mobility emissive organic semiconductors are the important core materials for the realization of organic light-emitting transistors(OLETs). However, it remains a long-standing challenge for developing high mobility emissive organic semiconductors because of the different molecular design requirements as well as their molecular packing in solid state. Recently, significant advance has been achieved in the development of high mobility emissive organic semiconductors, especially for the anthracene-derived high mobility emissive materials, which would lead to the rapid development of this field. In this article, we first give a brief introduction for the significant progress in the whole field, and then focus on special development of high mobility emissive anthracene-derivatives(more than 20 types) along with their molecular structure design, molecular packing and optoelectronic properties as well as their applications in OLETs. Finally, the challenges, development directions and opportunities are discussed. Hopefully, this review would give a valuable guideline for the further research in this field.
