Abstract: The stable and reliable red phosphors with high-photon energy emission (620-650 nm) is critical for the fabrication of the phosphor-converted white light-emitting diode (WLED) with low correlated color temperature and high color rendering. The Mn4+-activated phosphor is an emerging kind of red-emitting phosphors for WLED. Herein, the energy level transition and photoluminescence characteristics of the Mn4+ ion were introduced; then, the preparation, crystal structure and luminescent properties of the as-far reported seven kinds of Mn4+-doped oxyfluoride red phosphors (such as Na2WO2F4:Mn4+) containing d0, d10 or s0 cations were reviewed. Currently, only in quite rare case of oxyfluoride, Mn4+ was found to exhibit strong R-line emission, with local coordination remaining as either [MnF6] or [MnO6]. The studies on the chemical stability and quantum efficiency of Mn4+-doped oxyfluoride phosphors are still insufficient. Finally, the future development of Mn4+-doped oxyfluoride phosphor was prospected.
