A novel tetraphenylethylene complex composed of 4',4'',4''',4''''-(ethene-1,1,2,2-tetrayl)tetrabiphenyl-4-carboxylic acid (H4 ETTC) and dimethyldioctadecylammonium bromide (DOAB) with enhanced solid-state emission is designed and synthesized through an ionic self-assembly (ISA) strategy. The aggregation-induced emission property, phase behavior, and supramolecular structure of the complex are characterized by a combination of experimental measurements. The experimental results reveal that the… CONTINUE READING
