Aggregation-induced emission enhancement of chiral boranils

Author affiliations


New boranils based on chiral benzylamines have been synthesized and their photophysical properties studied. These BF2-complexes exhibit a bright blue fluorescence in solution and in the solid state, and exhibit aggregation-induced emission enhancement. The chirality of the ligand, even if it is not directly located at the boron center, has consequences on the circular dichroism of the complexes.
