Interactions between π-conjugated chromophores in a giant molecular spoked wheel

Author affiliations

Abstract

We discuss the intriguing photophysics of a giant molecular spoked wheel of π-conjugated arylene–alkynylene chromophores on the single-molecule level. This “molecular mesoscopic” structure, C1878H2682, shows fast switching between the 12 identical chromophores since the fluorescence is unpolarised but only one chromophore emits at a time.
