Tetrabenzo[5.7]fulvalene: a forgotten aggregation induced-emission luminogen

Author affiliations

Abstract

Tetrabenzo[5.7]fulvalene, one of the first recognized stable members of mixed fulvalenes, has attracted widespread interest for its remarkable structure. However, little has been known about its photoactivity, most likely owing to its very weak luminescence in the solution state. Here we show for the first time that this compound exhibits aggregation-induced emission (AIE) properties. Its photoluminescence and X-ray crystal structure reveal an interesting mechanism of the AIE phenomenon.
