Abstract

original image

Glowing together: An efficient red-light-emitting system has been created in polar water media based on the aggregation of donor–acceptor molecules. In the THF/water mixture, the emission was quenched when a small volume of water was used, whereas it was recovered and enhanced upon aggregate formation with a large water volume.
