A series of emitting push-pull triarylamine derivatives, models of their widely used homologues in photonics and organic electronics, was investigated by steady-state and time-resolved spectroscopy. Their structural originality stems from the sole change of the electron-withdrawing substituent X (-H: 1, -CN: 2, -NO2: 3, -CHC(CN)2: 4), giving rise to(More)
A series of dipolar triphenylaminoazo derivatives, with largely distinct charge transfer and glass transition temperatures, has been synthesized. Their photomigration capability in the solid state to form surface relief gratings (SRGs) under interferential illumination has been investigated with respect to their photochromic properties and showed a(More)
This article reports on a comprehensive study of the two-photon absorption (2PA) properties of six novel push-pull octupolar triarylamine compounds as a function of the nature of the electron-withdrawing groups. These compounds present an octupolar structure consisting of a triarylamine core bearing two 3,3'-bis(trifluoromethyl)phenyl arms and a third group(More)
An original design of a fluorescent dithienylethene (DTE)-based bipyridine, where donor (D) and acceptor (A) groups are located on the same thiophene ring of the DTE unit, is reported; in non-polar solvents, UV or visible excitation triggers a photo-chromic reaction, disrupting the conjugation and quenching the fluorescence. Fluorescent switching systems(More)
Amorphous red-emitting materials involving solvatochromic small molecules have been processed by the reprecipitation method as non-doped nanospheres characterized by a remarkably low polydispersity. Their mean diameter could simply be tuned by the concentration of the organic solution giving rise to time-stable dispersion of 85-200 nm-sized nanoparticles.(More)
Phosphonic and carboxylic fluorescent nanoparticles have been fabricated by direct reprecipitation in water. Their fluorescence properties strongly differ from those of the corresponding esters where strong H-bonding formation is prohibited. Comparative experiments between the two acid derivatives, differing only in their acid functions while keeping the(More)
High-density nanoarchitectures, endowed with simultaneous fluorescence and contrast properties for MRI and TEM imaging, have been obtained using a simple self-assembling strategy based on supramolecular interactions between non-doped fluorescent organic nanoparticles (FON) and superparamagnetic nanoparticles. In this way, a high-payload core-shell structure(More)
