Abstract

Pyrene is a representative aggregation-caused quenching (ACQ) chromophore. Herein, by introducing tetraphenylethylene or triphenylethylene with a typical aggregation-induced emission (AIE) characteristic at its 2,7-positions, we have succeeded in converting it into AIE luminogens (AIEgens). The new compounds, namely Py-TPE and Py-TriPE, exhibit strong sky-blue emission (
