Encapsulation of Isolated Luminophores within Supramolecular Cages

Encapsulation of Isolated Luminophores within Supramolecular Cages
Michael D. Ward, Chunhua Hu, Marcel Handke, Takuji Adachi
Organic solid-state dye lasers promise versatility with respect to spectral tuning, but often face challenges owing to self-quenching by aggregation. In their Communication (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201707097), M. D. Ward et al. describe an approach to solid-state lasing compounds in which isolated luminescent guest molecules, some well-known laser dyes, are encapsulated in cages of a crystalline hydrogen-bonded zeolite-like framework. The luminescence of each compound is consistent with the absence of self-quenching, and the emission color can be tuned from blue to red by the choice of guest molecule.
