  • The optical properties of 2,6-diacetoxyanthracene 4 encapsulated in the self-assembled boronic ester cavitand capsule 3 in C(6)H(6) are described. Upon excitation at 285 nm, the encapsulated 4 showed strong fluorescence emission as a result of the energy transfer from the excited 3 to the encapsulated 4, while 4 alone in C(6)H(6) exhibited very weak emission. Upon photoirradiation at 365 nm, the encapsulated 4 also showed strong fluorescence emission and remained almost intact, whereas 4 alone… CONTINUE READING
