Coordination-driven self assembly of a brilliantly fluorescent rhomboid cavitand composed of bodipy-dye subunits.


The two sp(3) hybridized fluorine atoms of a Bodipy dye have been synthetically replaced with the linear donor ligand 4-ethynylpyridine (-C≡C-Py) to form a rigid and highly symmetrical 109.5° building block in which the fluorophore subunit is vertically aligned to the plane formed by the -C≡C-Py donors. Upon reaction of the above tecton with a 90… (More)
