A linear molecular dyad was synthesised comprising a pyrene-thiophene energy donor linked via a triazole unit to a borondipyrromethene (Bodipy) energy acceptor. The donor to acceptor separation distance is around 20 Å. Emission from the donor originates from a mixed π-π* and partial charge-transfer state and overlaps favourably with the absorption profile… CONTINUE READING
