Benzothiazolium-functionalized tetraphenylethene: an AIE luminogen with tunable solid-state emission

Author affiliations

Abstract

Melding a benzothiazolium unit with tetraphenylethene generates a new hemicyanine luminogen with aggregation-induced emission characteristics; the luminogen exhibits crystochromism and its solid-state emission can be repeatedly tuned from yellow or orange to red by grinding–fuming or grinding–heating processes due to the transformation from the crystalline to the amorphous state and vice versa.
