Abstract

original image

Blue belt: Condensation polymerization of pyrene (blue) and triphenylene (green) monomers leads to the formation of a hexagonal mesoporous covalent organic framework (see picture). This material exists in a belt shape, absorbs photons over a wide wavelength range to emit them as blue luminescence, and is semiconducting, as well as being capable of repetitive on–off switching.
