Artificial light-harvesting supramolecular polymeric nanoparticles formed by pillar[5]arene-based host–guest interaction

Author affiliations

Abstract

Artificial light-harvesting nanoparticles were prepared from supramolecular polymers comprised of pillar[5]arene with anthracene-derived donors and acceptors through host–guest interactions. The resulting water-dispersible nanoparticles displayed efficient energy transfer and excellent light harvesting ability in part because the steric bulk of pillar[5]arene suppressed the self-quenching of the chromophores.
