Preparation of fluorescent polystyrene nanoparticles mediated by a multi-functional amphiphilic iridium complex under visible light irradiation in aqueous solution

Author affiliations

Abstract

A gemini-type iridium(III) complex was designed, synthesized, and served as both a photoinitiator and a surfactant to polymerize styrene in aqueous solution. Under visible light irradiation, polystyrene with a uniform sphere morphology and ultra-bright luminescence was obtained. This new methodology provided a simple, eco-friendly and unique platform for the preparation of phosphorescent polymeric nanomaterials.
