BODIPY-phenylacetylene macrocycle motifs for enhanced light-harvesting and energy transfer applications

Author affiliations

Abstract

A supramolecular BODIPY molecule functionalized with a phenylacetylene macrocycle is reported. Light absorption by the macrocycle results in energy transfer to the BODIPY core as evidenced by fluorescence studies. This supramolecular motif demonstrates an effective strategy for panchromatic light-harvesting.
