High aspect ratio, processable coordination polymer gel nanotubes based on an AIE-active LMWG with tunable emission

24 August, 2015 - 17:54

Chem. Commun., 2015, Advance Article
DOI: 10.1039/C5CC05453B, CommunicationVenkata M. Suresh, Anangsha De, Tapas Kumar Maji
Self-assembly of a rationally designed AIE active LMWG, driven by intermolecular H-bonding, forms 1D nanofibers with strong cyan emission due to AIE properties of the TPE core. On the other hand, addition of metal ions results in the formation of nanotubular structures with strong blue emission in the gel state due to AIE and MCIE.
