Two-dimensional optical waveguiding and luminescence vapochromic properties of 8-hydroxyquinoline zinc (Znq2) hexagonal microsheets

Abstract

Two-dimensional (2D) hexagonal microsheets of 8-hydroxyquinoline zinc (Znq2) were synthesized readily via a mixed solvent induced self-assembly method. The 2D optical waveguiding properties of the microsheets have been clearly revealed by both fluorescence microscopy and confocal microscopy. In addition, the reversible vapochromic properties of the microsheets have also been demonstrated when the Znq2 is exposed to HCl and NH3 vapors.
