Abstract

The search of new organic emitters is receiving a strong motivation by the development of ORTP materials. In the present study we report on the preparation, optical and photophysical characterization, by both steady state and time resolved techniques, of two pyrene-functionalized cyclic triimidazole derivatives. Together with the already reported mono-substituted derivative, the di- and tri-substituted members of the family have revealed as intriguing emitters characterized by impressive quantum yields in solution and RTP properties in the solid state. In particular, phosphorescence lifetimes increase from 5.19 to 20.54 and 40.62 ms for mono-, di- and trisubstituted compounds, respectively. Based on spectroscopical results and theoretical DFT/TDDFT calculations on the di-pyrene molecule, differences in photophysical performances of the three compounds have been assigned to intermolecular interactions increasing with the number of pyrene moieties appended to the cyclic triimidazole scaffold.
