Journal of Luminescence
Silole, Luminescence, Aggregation-induced emission
The synthesis and spectroscopic characteristics, including quantum yield and luminescence lifetime, of1,1-dimethyl-2,5-di(2-naphthyl)-3,4-diphenylsilole are described. Unlike most aryl substituted siloles, the compound displays very efficient luminescence in solution, but does not exhibit aggregation-induced emission. In addition, the solution-phase emission intensity demonstrates an unusual time dependence.
