Photophysical investigations are reported for two arene-derivatized zirconium phosphonates (layered solids). The chromophore groups that are attached within the interlayer region of these materials are seen to form excimer pairs. Whereas the naphthalene-containing system exhibits both monomer and excimer fluorescence, the potentially greater overlap of chromophores for the system containing anthracene-pendant groups causes that compound to only show excimer fluorescence.
