Multicolour photochromic fluorescence of a fluorophore encapsulated in a metal–organic framework

Author affiliations

Abstract

A fluorophore encapsulated in a metal–organic framework showed photochromic multicolour fluorescence. Irradiation with an ultraviolet laser induced the relocation of the fluorophore from a polar to a nonpolar environment, altering the emission from red to blue. This change in emission color can be repeatably recovered by heating the fluorophore–MOF composite.
