The present invention is a light emitting device material characterized by containing an anthracene compound represented by the following general formula (1) or general formula (3), and the present invention allows a light emitting device having high luminous efficiency and excellent durability.
(R1 to R10 are a hydrogen atom, alkyl group, cycloalkyl group, heterocyclic group or the like. At least one of the R1 to R10 is a substituent represented by the following general formula (2).)
(R11 to R18 are a hydrogen atom, alkyl group and cycloalkyl group. X is an oxygen atom or sulfur atom, and Y is a single bond; arylene group or heteroarylene group. Any one of the R11 to R18 is used for linking with Y, and α is used for linking with the anthracene skeleton.)
(R19 to R37 are a hydrogen atom, alkyl group, cycloalkyl group, heterocyclic group or the like. n is 1 or 2. A is a heteroarylene group or arylene group. Any one of the R19 to R27 and any one of the R28 to R37 are used for linking with A.)
