Phys Chem Chem Phys. 2015 Dec 28;17(48):32472-8. doi: 10.1039/c5cp05473g.Two novel aggregation-induced emission enhancement (AIEE) molecules, namely, 3,4-diphenyl-2,5-di(2-thienyl)phenyltrimethylsilane (DPTB-TMS) and bis[3,4-diphenyl- 2,5-di(2-thienyl)phenyl]methylphenylsilane (DPTB-TMS) were designed and synthesized. The optical properties of the two silanes were completely opposite to the traditional luminescent materials. Unlike the aggregation caused quenching, they all emit faint fluorescence in the dispersed state, while emission intensity increased sharply in aggregate states. Read More
