A Solution-Processable meso-Phenyl-BODIPY-Based n-Channel Semiconductor with Enhanced Fluorescence Emission
MetadataShow full item record
The cover feature shows the delicate balance between locally excited (LE) and twisted intramolecular charge-transfer (TICT) states, which could be controlled by solvent polarity and nano-aggregation, of a meso-phenyl-BODIPY-based fluorescent semiconductor. The dihedral angle between the meso-aromatic unit and BODIPY pi-core was found to be the key factor in this balance. This is the first report of highly emissive characteristics for an A-D-A type BODIPY-based n-channel semiconductor. Details are given in the Full Paper by B. Cosut, H. Usta, C. Kim, and co-workers (DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201900317).
