Triarylisocyanurate-Based Fluorescent Two-Photon Absorbers

Olivier Mongin


The synthesis and characterization of six triarylisocyanurates, featuring 2,7-fluorenyl or 9,10-anthracenyl groups incorporated in their peripheral arms are reported. Photophysical studies reveal that these new octupolar derivatives are more fluorescent (Φ ≥0.60 for all new compounds except for 1,3,5-tri(9H-fluoren-2-yl)-1,3,5-triazinane-2,4,6-trione 3) and present a red-shifted lowest absorption and emission compared to their known phenyl analogues of comparable size. Depending on the nature of the terminal substituent, fast intramolecular energy transfer among the three arms or localization of the excitation on a single branch occurs after population of their first singlet excited state. The latter effect was only observed in the presence of strongly electron-releasing substituents in polar media. These new chromophores are also better two-photon absorbers than the 1,4-phenylene-based isocyanurates reported so far, with cross sections σ ≥500 GM at 770 nm for 4-NPh the fluorenyl group containing (13) and the anthracenyl group containing (14) chromophores. All these spectroscopic features, analyzed with the help of quantum chemical calculations, are crucial for the design of new biphotonic fluorescent dyes.
