Photochem Photobiol Sci. 2014 Feb;13(2):301-9. doi: 10.1039/c3pp50308a.Our long-range objective of developing surface anchored supramolecular assemblies as artificial light harvesting systems led us to explore the intercalation of guest molecules confined within octaamine hydrochloride (OAm·HCl) in the 2-dimensional galleries of layered inorganic material α-Zr(IV)phosphate (α-ZrP). Photophysical properties of 4,4'-dimethylbenzil, camphorthione, 4,4'-dimethylstilbene, pyrene and coumarin-1 were used to probe the intercalation behavior of OAm capsules within the galleries of α-ZrP.
