Nicola Armaroli, Henk J. Bolink (Eds.) - Springer, 2017
This book encompasses the discussion of the most established luminescent materials, such as organic polymers, transition metal complexes (iridium, copper, platinum, gold) and inorganic phosphors, with special emphasis on their use in emitting devices. Also contributions primarily focusing on electroluminescent devices - organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) and light-emitting electrochemical cells (LECs) - and fundamental photophysical phenomena of technological interest - photochemical upconversion and thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) - are discussed. Finally, luminescent perovskites and near-infrared emitters are illustrated as examples of materials with still limited or no technological applications, but with wide potential for development.

Powering Planet Earth

Energy Solutions for the Future

Nicola Armaroli, Vincenzo Balzani, and Nick Serpone

In this book authors reveal the details associated with a switch to sustainable energy that are routinely swept under the table in public discussions. In a highly readable manner, they provide ammunition for debate, underpin opinions using facts, and challenge our popular beliefs.


A stable and strongly luminescent dinuclear Cu(I) helical complex prepared from 2-diphenylphosphino-6-methylpyridine (Chem. Comm. 2013, 49, 859-861.)

Juan-Josè Cid, John Mohanraj, Meera Mohankumar, Michel Holler, Gianluca Accorsi, Lydia Brelot, Iwona Nierengarten, Omar Moudam, Adrien Kaeser, Béatrice Delavaux-Nicot, Nicola Armaroli and Jean-François Nierengarten

An easy-to-make and highly stable dinuclear Cu(I) complex, with a remarkably high emission quantum yield in rigid matrix at room temperature (46%), has been finally obtained.


Luminescent Blooming of Dendronic Carbon Nanotubes through Ion-Pairing Interactions with an EuIII Complex (Chem. Eur. J. 19/2012)

Laura Maggini, Dr. Francesca Maria Toma, Dr. Luigi Feruglio, Joanna M. Malicka, Dr. Tatiana Da Ros, Dr. Nicola Armaroli, Prof. Maurizio Prato and Dr. Davide Bonifazi

Article first published online: 3 MAY 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201290074

Strongly emitting hybrids are obtained when lanthanide complexes are blended with carbon nanotubes, in which the structural and electronic properties of both constituents are preserved. In their Full paper on page 5889 ff., D. Bonifazi, M. Prato, N. Armaroli et al. describe how a multiwalled carbon-nanotube scaffold was covalently functionalized with a second-generation, positively charged polyamidoamine dendron, and eventually coupled with a negatively charged and highly luminescent EuIII complex through electrostatic interactions to afford a bright, luminescent, and stable hybrid material. The high dispersibility and the small amounts required to obtain intense luminescent outputs make it a promising hybrid luminophore for photonic applications.
