Rigidifying Effect of Metal-Organic Frameworks: Protect the Conformation, Packing Mode, and Blue Fluorescence of a Soft Piezofluorochromic Compound under Pressures up to 8 MPa.


We demonstrate that the conformation, packing mode, and blue fluorescence of a soft piezofluorochromic compound can be preserved by structurally fixing it into a solid calcium metal-organic framework (Ca-MOF, LIFM-40), which can survive pressures up to 8 MPa. DFT calculations have been combined with experimental results to indicate that the ligands adopting… (More)
