Inside Cover: Planarized and Twisted Intramolecular Charge Transfer: A Concept for Fluorophores Showing Two Independent Rotations in Excited State (Chem. Eur. J. 39/2017)
Gebhard Haberhauer
The concept of the PLATICT state is illustrated in the image. The key element is a fluorophore containing two donor (blue) and two acceptor groups (red). Absorption of UV light leads to an intramolecular charge transfer state, which is stabilized by two independent rotations. The result is the formation of the planarized and twisted intramolecular charge transfer (PLATICT) state. Due to the twofold rotations in the excited state, the fluorescence has a very large Stokes shift. The Cover picture was designed by Gunnar Floss (floss-design). More information can be found in the Full Paper by G. Haberhauer on page 9288.
