Two photoactive cyclodextrin hosts have been prepared and studied in participation on photophysical processes, one with a ruthenium tris(bipyridyl) core which forms a trimeric host and the other with an appended anthracene unit. An acetylide functionalized bipyridyl cyclodextrin, , was prepared by palladium coupling of mono-6-propargyl permethylated beta-CD and 4-bromo-2,2'-bipyridine. The ruthenium complex, [Ru(3)]Cl(2), shows luminescence from the (3)MLCT centered at 650 nm with a quantum… CONTINUE READING
