In this work, we have explored for the first time the influence of conformational flexibility of π-core on chiral self-sorting properties of perylene bisimides (PBIs) that are currently one of the most prominent classes of functional dyes. For this purpose, two series of chiral macrocyclic PBIs 3a-c and 4a-c comprising oligoethylene glycol bridges of(More)
The activation parameters for the interconversion of atropisomers (P- and M-enantiomer) of core-twisted perylene bisimides have been determined by dynamic NMR spectroscopy (DNMR) and time- and temperature-dependent CD spectroscopy. By comparing the activation parameters of a series of perylene bisimides containing halogen or aryloxy substituents in the bay(More)
Comparative studies on hydrogen-bonded versus covalently linked donor-acceptor-donor dye arrays obtained from oligo(p-phenylene vinylene)s (OPVs) as donor and bay-substituted perylene bisimides (PERYs) as acceptor dyes are presented. Both systems form well-ordered J-type aggregates in methylcyclohexane, but only hydrogen-bonded arrays afford hierarchically(More)
Experimental Section Solvents and reagents were purchased from Merck and used as received. 1,6,7,12Tetrachloroperylene-3,4:9,10-tetracarboxylic acid bisanhydride was obtained from BASF. N,N'-Didodecylperylene-3,4:9,10-tetracarboxylic acid bisimide 2 was synthesized according to the literature. NMR spectra were recorded on a Bruker DRX 400 spectrometer using(More)
Characterization of the photophysical parameters for three perylene bisimide derivatives is presented. We exploited time-resolved and steady-state spectroscopy on both ensembles and single molecules under ambient as well as cryogenic (1.4 K) conditions. The finding is that these chromophores show extraordinary high fluorescence-emission rates, low(More)
Two new supramolecular boxes, (ZnMC)(2)(rPBI)(2) and (ZnMC)(2)(gPBI)(2), have been obtained by axial coordination of N,N'-dipyridyl-functionalized perylene bisimide (PBI) dyes to the zinc ion centers of two 2+2 porphyrin metallacycles (ZnMC = [trans,cis,cis-RuCl(2)(CO)(2)(Zn·4'-cis-DPyP)](2)). The two molecular boxes involve PBI pillars with different(More)
The macrocyclization of the tetra-hydroxyphenoxy-substituted perylene bisimide 4 bearing two (R)-configured 2-octyl substituents in the imide positions by etherification with diethylene glycol ditosylate afforded both the diagonally bridged (1,7- and 6,12-linkage) and laterally bridged (1,12- and 6,7-linkage) regioisomers 6 and 7. The atropo-diastereomers(More)
[reaction: see text] A series of bay position difluoro- or tetrafluoro-substituted perylene bisimides have been synthesized by nucleophilic halogen exchange reaction of the corresponding dibromo- and tetrachloro-substituted perylene bisimides, respectively, with potassium fluoride. Compared to the parent unsubstituted perylene bisimides, these compounds(More)
