Nanotubes from isomeric dibenzoylmethane molecules
2005 (English)In: Chemistry - A European Journal, ISSN 0947-6539, E-ISSN 1521-3765, Vol. 11, no 12, 3773-3778 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Organic nanotubes of various diameters were fabricated from the isomeric molecule dibenzoylmethane (DBM) by using an immersing technique with ordered porous alumina membrane as the template. The ratio of the enol isomers of DBM increased as the diameters of the nanotubes decreased. In addition, although almost no fluorescence could be detected for the DBM monomer, a striking enhancement in the fluorescence emission intensity of the nanotubes was observed as the diameters decreased. This is due to the increased ratio of the enol isomers.
