An organic electroluminescence device includes: a cathode; an anode; and a single-layered or multilayered organic thin-film layer provided between the cathode and the anode. The organic thin-film layer includes at least one emitting layer. The at least one emitting layer contains at least one phosphorescent material and a host material represented by the following formula (1).
In the formula, Ar1, Ar2, Ar3, B1, B2, B3 and B4 each represent a substituted or unsubstituted benzene ring or a substituted or unsubstituted condensed aromatic hydrocarbon ring selected from a naphthalene ring, a chrysene ring, a fluoranthene ring, a phenanthrene ring, a benzophenanthrene ring, a dibenzophenanthrene ring, a triphenylene ring, a benzo[a]triphenylene ring, a benzochrysene ring, a benzo[b]fluoranthene ring and a picene ring. p is 0 or 1.
