Abstract:A new class of organic nanoparticles (CN-MBE nanoparticles) with a mean diameter of ca. 30-40 nm, which exhibit a strongly enhanced fluorescence emission, were prepared by a simple reprecipitation method. CN-MBE (1-cyano-trans-1,2-bis-(4'-methylbiphenyl)ethylene) is very weakly fluorescent in solution, but the intensity is increased by almost 700 times in the nanoparticles. Enhanced emission in CN-MBE nanoparticles is attributed to the synergetic effect of intramolecular planarization and J-type aggregate form…
