Reversible quenching of a chromophore luminescence by color transition of a polydiacetylene.


A new reactive diacetylene molecule has been synthesized, incorporating a strongly luminescent chromophore, tetrazine (Tz). It readily polymerizes into the blue polydiacetylene (PDA) form, quenching the Tz luminescence already at concentrations ≤1 %. The blue to red PDA transition is thermally induced in the solid state and the original strong Tz emission… (More)
