Recyclable Mechanoluminescent Luminogen: Different Polymorphs, Different Self-Assembly Effect of Thiophene Moiety and Recovered Molecular Packing via Simple Thermal-Treatment

Abstract

We report the purely organic recyclable mechanoluminescent luminogen (tPE-5-MeTh) with the combination of AIEgen and thiophene group as the self-assembly unit. As the result of the different self-assembly effect, two crystalline polymorphs were cultured from different solvents, which possess totally different packing mode and various inter/intramolecular interactions with opposite ML property. Excitedly, the molecular packing status of tPE-5-MeTh could be adjusted through the simple thermal-treatment, offering the recoverability and controllability of its ML activity. These results provide a new avenue for the rational molecular design, convenience of potential applications and deep understanding of the inherent mechanism.
