    Color-Tunable Cyano-Substituted Divinylene Arene…

    F. Aparicio, S. Cherumukkil, A. Ajayaghosh* and L. Sánchez* Color-Tunable Cyano-Substituted Divinylene Arene Luminogens as Fluorescent pi-Gelators The synthesis of three cyano-substituted divinylene pi-gelators is reported. The modulation of the color is achieved by placing the cyano groups in appropriate position of the conjugated backbone, thus modulating the donor−acceptor interaction. Variable-temperature UV/Vis data have been […]

    Heteroatom induced contrasting effects on the stimuli responsive properties of anthracene based donor-pi-acceptor fluorophores

    Karattu Chali Naeem, Akhila Subhakumari, Sunil Varughese and Vijayakumar C. Nair* Two donor--acceptor type fluorophores consisting of anthracene as the donor and benzoxazole (ABO) or benzothiazole (ABT) as the acceptors are designed and synthesised. Both fluorophores exhibit excellent solid state luminescence, and respond to external stimuli such as mechanical force (mechanochromism) and protons (acidochromism). Though […]
