Excited-state intramolecular proton transfer (ESIPT) compounds, 2-(2-((2-hydroxybenzylidine)amino)phenoxy)benzonitrile (1) and 2-(4-((2-hydroxy-4-methoxybenzylidine)amino)phenoxy)benzonitrile (2) exhibited aggregation induced enhanced emission (AIEE) in the solid state and nanofabrication mediated white light emission. The strong intermolecular interactions (H-bonding, C–H···π and π··· π) restrict the free rotation and rigidify the fluorophores, 1 and 2, in the crystal lattice that lead to… Expand
