Dual Solution-/Solid-State Emissive Excited-State Intramolecular Proton Transfer (ESIPT) Dyes: A Combined Experimental and Theoretical Approach

Abstract : Excited-state intramolecular proton transfer (ESIPT) dyes typically show strong solid-state emission, but faint fluorescence intensity is observed in the solution state owing to detrimental molecular motions. This article investigates the influence of direct (hetero)arylation on the optical properties of 2-(2′-hydroxyphenyl)benzoxazole ESIPT emitters. The synthesis of two series of ESIPT emitters bearing substituted neutral or charged aryl, thiophene, or pyridine rings is reported herein along with full photophysical studies in solution and solid states, demonstrating the dual solution-/solid-state emission behavior. Depending on the nature of substitution, several excited-state dynamics are observed: quantitative or partially frustrated ESIPT process or deprotonation of the excited species. Protonation studies revealed that pyridine substitution triggered a strong increase of quantum yield in the solution state for the protonated species owing to favorable quinoidal stabilization. These attractive features led to the development of a second series of dyes with alkyl or aryl pyridinium moieties showing strong tunable solution/solid fluorescence intensity. For each series, ab initio calculations helped rationalize and ascertain their behavior in the excited state and the nature of the emission observed by the experimental results
