Luminescent molecules with high efficiency in aggregate state are promising candidate materials for the development of organic light-emitting diodes, fluorescent sensors, solid-state lasers, and so on. The discovery of aggregation-induced emission (AIE), whereby the aggregation of luminogens plays a positive role, enhancing the light-emission efficiency, has attracted much interest as it offers a new platform for the exploration of practically useful luminescent materials. This Faraday Discussion brings together researchers in the field to discuss the progress made so far, current challenges and potential breakthroughs that may be accomplished in the near future. It focuses on the issues associated with the development of new fluorescent and phosphorescent AIEgens, particularly the advanced functional AIEgens with stimuli-responses, and the exploration of high-tech applications of the AIEgens, especially in the area of biomedical research.
About the Author
Faraday Discussions documents a long-established series of Faraday Discussion meetings which provide a unique international forum for the exchange of views and newly acquired results in developing areas of physical chemistry, biophysical chemistry and chemical physics. The papers presented are published in the Faraday Discussion volume together with a record of the discussion contributions made at the meeting. Faraday Discussions therefore provide an important record of current international knowledge and views in the field concerned. The latest (2012) impact factor of Faraday Discussions is 3.82.
