General description

Anthracene, a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon, is an important moiety in supramolecular chemistry due to its size and shape and photophysical properties. Its closed-shelled Huckel aromatic structure, fluorescence property, well-resolved absorption and emission bands, high fluorescence quantum yield and nanosecond lifetime makes it an ideal organic fluorophore.

Application

Anthracene has been shown to be soluble in a variety of binary and ternary mixtures of cyclohexanone, ethyl acetate, and methanol .

We describe the challenges involved with extending the limited lateral size of two-dimensional polymers (2DPs). An amphiphilic monomer with three-fold symmetry is chosen to form an ideally tessellated monolayer at the air/water interface. Anthracene [4+4] photo-dimerization is chosen as the...

The tendency of a Hg(II) ion to strongly quench fluorescence of potential fluorescent sensors is explored. Fluorescence measurements show the expected order of the chelation-enhanced fluorescence (CHEF) effect of Zn(II) > Cd(II) > Hg(II) ~ Cu(II), which is interpreted as...

Clusters of boron atoms exhibit intriguing size-dependent structures and chemical bonding that are different from bulk boron and may lead to new boron-based nanostructures. We report a combined photoelectron spectroscopic and ab initio study of the 22- and 23-atom boron...

A bowl-shaped organic host was prepared by linking two anthracene-embedded bispyridine ligands with two methylene spacers. The water-soluble host has a hemispherical hydrophobic cavity (∼1 nm in diameter) with two cationic methylenebispyridinyl (Lewis acidic) moieties and shows the selective recognition...
