Vapor Triggered fluorescent color changes among solvates of Emodin

Abstract

The reversible vapochromic phenomenon of Emodin (EM), an eco-friendly natural occurred and metal-free organic MCL material, was investigated and six new EM solvates were synthesized. Vapor and mechanic force triggered reversible fluorescent color changes which happened during solid-state transition processes were fully studied. It was found that different kinds of H-bond and π-π interactions illustrated the reasons why EM solvates exhibited obvious different fluorescent colors. This work provides a new approach to find vapor sensitive MCL material without metal element and chemical synthesis.
