We report the findings of our experimental and theoretical investigations into the properties of pyridinium enolates and their potential utility in light-harvesting applications, such as in luminescent solar concentrators (LSCs). We present the synthesis, structures, photophysical characterization, and wavefunction-based quantum-chemical studies of five cyclobetaines. The performance of an LSC device incorporating one of these cyclobetaines is shown to be comparable to state-of-the-art devices. Experiment and theory: Pyridinium enolates and their potential utility in light-harvesting applications, such as in luminescent solar concentrators, were studied experimentally and theoretically. The synthesis, structures, photophysical properties, and wavefunction-based quantum-chemical studies of five cyclobetaines are presented.
