Abstract

Multicolor emissive materials consisting of a single luminophore, a Lewis acid, and their complex were developed. The emission colors can be tuned by changing the concentration of the solution and the ratio of mixed solvents. Various emission colors in the solid state were observed when the complexes were added to polymers in different amounts. The color change is due to equilibrium disruption between the single luminophore, the Lewis acid, and the complex thereof. White emission was observed by appropriately controlling the equilibrium by changing the amount of the complex in the polymer.
