Luminescence-/morphology-modulation of organic microcrystals by the protonation process

Abstract

Organic nano/microcrystals with the desirable optical/electrical properties and the regular morphology are extensively applied into various optoelectronic devices in the microscale, while the morphology/luminescence-modulation of organic microstructures remains a big challenge. Herein, we utilize the protonation/de-protonation process to simultaneously modulate both the luminescence and the morphology of these blue-emissive two-dimensional (2D) organic microcrystals, which are self-assembled from 1,4-bis((E)-2-(3-methylpyridin-4-yl)vinyl)benzene (MSP) by the facile solution-exchange method. Impressively, 1D color-tunable MSP•nHCl (n is an integer) organic microwires can be obtained by the protonation process activated by the addition of acid (such as hydrochloric acid). When n = 2 or n > 2, these obtained MSP•2HCl or MSP•nHCl microcrystals with 1D wire-morphology showed the yellow light or the red light respectively.
