Abstract

The identification of a new class of luminogens based on pyrrolo-quinoxaline embedded coumarin (PQC) structures is reported. The reaction relies on the gold-catalyzed hydroarylation reaction of appropriately substituted aryl alkynoates that produces molecules that exhibit solvatochromism and aggregation-induced emission enhancement (AIEE) phenomena. The application of PQCs for live cell imaging has also been demonstrated.
