: We report the facile, metal-free convergent synthesis and the characterization of novel quinacridone dyes in which two triptycene units end-cap and sterically confine the quinacridone chromophore. A precise comparison of the confined dyes with their known homologues reveals that the reduction of π-π interactions in triptycene-fused quinacridone dyes compared to classical quinacridone results not only in an increase of solubility and processability but also in an enhancement of fluorescence quantum yield and photostability in the solid state.

Abstract

: We report the facile, metal-free convergent synthesis and the characterization of novel quinacridone dyes in which two triptycene units end-cap and sterically confine the quinacridone chromophore. A precise comparison of the confined dyes with their known homologues reveals that the reduction of π-π interactions in triptycene-fused quinacridone dyes compared to classical quinacridone results not only in an increase of solubility and processability but also in an enhancement of fluorescence quantum yield and photostability in the solid state.
