Autofluorescent micelles self-assembled from an AIE-active luminogen containing an intrinsic unconventional fluorophore†
Autofluorescent micelles were constructed via the self-assembly of amphiphilic molecules containing an intrinsic fluorophore. The amphiphilic molecule was an AIE-active luminogen without a conventional π–π conjugated structure. In this unconventional luminogenic system, the hydrogen-bonded amide groups were assigned as the emitting sources.
