Abstract

Highly pure and solution processable white-light-emitting hybrids are presented. These soft-hybrids are designed by an organic–inorganic supramolecular co-assembly in water. White-light emission is achieved by partial energy transfer (ET) between donor and acceptor molecules anchored on the inorganic component. The unique and remarkable processability feature of these hybrids is demonstrated by painting/writing onto large glass and flexible plastic substrates.
