New ionic compounds with aggregation-induced emission (AIE) feature has been widely studied. These AIE-based luminogens (AIEgens) not only effectively resolve aggregation-caused quenching (ACQ) problems that are encountered for most of conventional fluorescent dyes, but also exhibit promising applications in biological imaging, potentially for a wide variety of diseases. However, such an AIE system needs to be further developed. In this work, a series of novel cationic AIEgens that are comprised...

Owing to the temporal/spatial control over reactions, switchable catalysis is emerging as a powerful tool to regulate polymer sequence and architecture directly from monomer mixtures. Herein, a cobalt salen pentenoate complex [salen = ( R,R )- N,N' -bis(3,5-di-tertbutylsalicylidene)-1,2-cyclohexanediamine ] is rationally designed as the catalyst for the ring-opening copolymerization (ROCOP) of epoxides/anhydrides/CO 2 . Via the migratory insertion of carbon monoxide (CO) into the Co-O bonds, the...

Circularly polarized luminescence (CPL) materials have attracted increasing interest due to their wide potential applications. However, achieving CPL-active materials with both large dissymmetry factor (glum) and high quantum yield (F) in solid state remains a challenge task. Here, a series of oriented polymer films with efficient CPL have been fabricated through photopolymerization of cholesteric liquid-crystalline mixtures doped with a tetraphenylethylene-based conjugated oligomer. The result...

Extensive recent efforts have been put on the design of high-performance organic near-infrared (NIR) photothermal agents (PTAs), especially over NIR-II bio-window (1000-1350 nm). So far, the development is mainly limited by the rarity of molecules with good NIR-II response. Here, we report organic nanoparticles of intermolecular charge-transfer complexes (CTCs) with easily programmable optical absorption. By employing different common donor and acceptor molecules to form CTC nanoparticles (CT NP...

The development of facile methods for the synthesis of functional hyperbranched polyelectrolytes plays a pivotal role for biomimicry and the creation of new materials. In this study, we reported an efficient multicomponent polyannulation for in situ generation of heteroaromatic hyperbranched polyelectrolytes by using readily accessible internal diynes and low-cost, commercially available arylnitriles, NaSbF 6 , and H 2 O/AcOH. The polymers were obtained in excellent yields (up to 99%) with extra...

Abstract Construction of single component theranostic agent with one-for-all features to concurrently afford both multi-modality imaging and therapy is an appealing yet significantly challenging task. Herein, a type of luminogens with aggregation-induced emission (AIE) characteristics are tactfully designed and facilely synthesized. These AIE luminogens (AIEgens) exhibit long emission wavelengths, good photostability, remarkable biocompatibility, good reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation per...

Accurate diagnosis and treatment have been extensively developed in the field of biomedicine, which puts forward higher requirements for the development of biomedical materials with high efficiency and selectivity. Among them, aggregation-induced emission (AIE) conjugated polymers have stood out in recent years owing to their unique properties, such as intense solid emission, high light-harvesting ability, efficient energy transfer, and high 1 O 2 generation ability, which empower them effective...
