Bright fluorescence through activation of a low absorption fluorophore: the case of a unique naphthalimide–tetrazine dyad

Author affiliations

Abstract

An original fluorescent dyad has been prepared, featuring a 1,8-naphthalimide chromophore linked to a fluorescent tetrazine. This bichromophore benefits from the good absorption coefficient of the imide, and displays a quasi complete energy transfer to the tetrazine, followed by its fluorescence emission. This allows the preparation of remarkable transparent solutions and solids displaying a strong yellow fluorescence with a long life-time.
