Abstract

A photoredox-catalyst- and template-free sunlight-induced molecular dimerization of a vinylpyridine-functionalized tetraarylaminoborane (TAAB) has been accomplished for the first time. The reaction is quantitative, highly regioselective, and thermally irreversible. The presence of the propeller-shaped TAAB framework allows selective photodimerization of one of the two vinyl pyridine units. Monomer 1 and photodimer 2 exhibit distinct photophysical properties with delayed fluorescence (DF) both in solution and the solid state, which was confirmed by steady-state and time-resolved luminescence studies. Quantum mechanical calculations were performed to support the experimental observations. Our new approach using 2+2] cycloaddition chemistry paves the way for the development of highly sought-after deep-blue DF materials.
