The electronic structures of tris(8-hydroquinoline) aluminum-hydroquinolatolithium (Liq)/Al interfaces were studied using in situ ultraviolet and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. We constructed complete energy level diagrams and analyzed chemical interactions at the interface. When Liq was inserted between Al and , the electron injection barrier was reduced by compared to the structure without Liq. Additionally, a gap state was observed in the gap of Liq, which is related to an interfacial reaction. The N spectra revealed that there were destructive chemical reactions between and Al, which could be prevented by inserting Liq between them.
