Abstract

original image

Together we shine: Fluorescence color change of 4-[bis(4-methylphenyl)amino]benzaldehyde (BMABA) could be induced by vigorous stirring and heating of the suspension. This is attributed to a morphological change of the particles from an amorphous state to a crystalline state; therefore, BMABA is identified as a new aggregation-induced emission material.
