EnglischThis thesis aims to investigate the structure-property relationship of luminescent Anthracene derivatives. For this purpose, the Anthracene fluorophore was functionalized in various positions and with different substituents. As a result, the occurring non-covalent interactions between the anthracene moieties could be varied over a broad range. With combined structural and photophysical studies, the influence of these weak interactions on the solid-state emission properties were investigated in detail. Especially, the formation of the Anthracene excimer in the solid-state was examined comprehensively. The correlations obtained in this work allow a deeper understanding of the solid-state photophysical properties of common organic fluorophores, which is helpful for potential optoelectronic applications.
