Efficient White-Light Generation from Ionically Self-Assembled Triply-Fluorescent Organic Nanoparticles

Taking inspiration from the designer nature of ionic-liquid chemistry, we introduce a new strategy toward white-light emission based on the facile generation of nanoparticles comprising three different fluorophores assembled in a well-defined stoichiometry purely through electrostatic interactions
