Abstract

We have prepared organic nanocrystals of [2.2]paracyclophane (pCp) and tetrakis(4-pyridylcyclobutyl)[2.2]paracyclophane (tpcp) via sonochemistry. Both nanocrystals exhibit an enhanced fluorescence compared to dilute solution, while the tpcp nanocrystals also demonstrate a red-shifted fluorescence.
