Interchromophoric communicationwhen darkness falls: This study investigates the electronic communication between various hole-transporting (HT) ligands and a rhenium(phenanthroline) centre to which they are coordinated. It is found that when the conjugation within the HT ligand is increased, the energy of a non-emissive HT ligand electronic transition is sufficiently lowered so that it interacts with, and partially deactivates, emission from the rhenium(phenanthroline) moiety (see figure).
