Abstract

original image

Fluorescent nanorods: Donor–acceptor dyads based on novel unsymmetrically disubstituted closo-1,12-dicarbadecaboranes have been prepared in a completely controlled manner by using a three-step procedure. Dyads with different donor–acceptor spacing were thereby obtained. Efficient energy transfer from the donor to the acceptor was determined in fluid solution at room temperature.
