Scholarcy highlights

  • An oligo(phenylenevinylene) based segmented polymer and its small molecule model compound were designed with a carboxyl functionality in the side chain
  • Article Views are the COUNTER-compliant sum of full text article downloads since November 2008 across all institutions and individuals
  • The Altmetric Attention Score is a quantitative measure of the attention that a research article has received online
  • The polymer and small molecule were complexed with pyridine functionalized perylene bisimide and the properties of the donor: acceptor complexes were compared
  • Both polymer and small molecule D:A complexes formed lamellar morphologies in the <10 nm length scale, which could be visualized by TEM and AFM imaging
  • The higher sensitivity of polymers toward temperature was made use of to tune the emission color in the complex from white at 30 °C to yellow-green at 100 °C and back to white upon cooling to 30 °C. Such a temperature sensitive emission color tuning was not observed in the small molecule complex under identical conditions
