We have designed and synthesized a series of 9-anthrylpyrazole derivatives 1,4-bis(3-(9-anthryl)-1-pyrazolylmethyl)benzene (1), 1-(3-(9-anthryl)-1-pyrazolylmethyl)-4-(5-(9-anthryl)-1-pyrazolylmethyl)benzene (2), 1,4-bis(3-(9-anthryl)-1-pyrazolyl)benzene (3), and 1-(3-(9-anthryl)-1-pyrazolyl)-4-(5-(9-anthryl)-1-pyrazolyl)benzene (4). All compounds formed two types of crystals that exhibited anthracene-arrangement-dependent emission colors. For instance, crystal 1a with strong π-overlap between anthracene moieties exhibited an emission maximum at 515 nm, while 1b with no such interchromophore interactions displayed an emission band at 424 nm. The fluorescence quantum yield (ΦF) measurements showed that the blue-emitting crystals have high quantum yields (ΦF = 0.46 for 1b, 0.90 for 2a, 0.91 for 2b, 0.77 for 3b, and 0.51 for 4a), suggesting their potential as blue emitters in optoelectronics.
