Tunable Color of Aggregation-Induced Emission Enhancement in a Family of Hydrogen-Bonded Azines and Schiff Bases


A simple synthesis strategy afforded a family of hydrogen-bonded azines and Schiff-bases. Although in dilute solution these dyes are faint light emitters, all exhibit bright luminescence upon aggregation. Changing the peripheral substituents from electron donating to electron withdrawing allows emission fine-tuning in a range from bluish-green to orange-red. The crystal structures of the materials reveal that the restriction of intramolecular rotations is the main mechanism for the aggregation-induced emission enhancement properties.
