A new fluorescent di-imine compound containing two naphthalene groups has been synthesized by classical Schiff-base reaction between 2,2’-[1,3-phenylene­bis­(methyleneoxy)]dibenzaldehyde and 1-naphthylmethylamine. The new bischromophoric compound has been characterised by IR, NMR and MALDI-TOF MS spectroscopy. The photophysical characterization was carried out by UV-vis and fluorescence emission spectroscopy, using chloroform. The monomer and excimer bands, typical for the naphthalene in solution, are present in the emission spectra for the compound. View Full-Text
