Structure–property relationships in aromatic thioethers featuring aggregation-induced emission: solid-state structures and theoretical analysis

Author affiliations

Abstract

We describe in this paper a structure–property relationship study of aromatic thioethers with aggregation-induced emission (AIE) properties. We combine a structural analysis based on geometrical consideration with an in-depth analysis of the crystalline packing supported by quantum mechanical calculations. Our results allow us to correlate the enhanced fluorescence quantum yields with the significant increase of C–H⋯π and the decrease of π⋯π interactions in the solid state – a result which supports the well-accepted AIE mechanism quantitatively.
