Structural Organization of π Conjugated Highly Luminescent Molecular Material

Abstract : We report on striking evidence for a room temperature structural phase instability in p-hexaphenyl, inducing a nonplanar conformation of the molecules. Solid state proton NMR and single crystal x-ray diffraction allow the analysis of the organization, the individual dynamics and the involved symmetry breaking. The analysis of Raman spectra above and below room temperature reveals a singular behavior suggesting a modification of the overlap between the electronic wave function induced by the non-planarity. These results provide a new basis to answer fundamental issues related to molecular and electronic materials and, in particular, luminescent organic devices.
