The pentaphenylborole-2,6-lutidine adduct: a system with unusual thermochromic and photochromic properties.


Organoboranes have attracted great attention owing to their interesting photophysical properties, which enable promising applications as optoelectronics and colorimetric chemosensors. Three-coordinate boron has a low-lying empty p orbital, which bestows a strong Lewis acidity to the resulting substances and promotes electron transport through conjugated… (More)
