We report the structural and photophysical property analyses of a new emissive copper (I) complex CuI(PPh3) (L) (1, L = 4,4'-dimethoxy-2,2'-bipyridine) which demonstrates solvatochromism. When recrystallized from acetonitrile, the originally orange color of 1 becomes yellow and demonstrates a blue-shifted, broad emission spectrum. This process is reversed when the yellow solid is redissolved in dichloromethane and recrystallized. The lattice parameters and angles found were alpha = 17.769 angstrom, beta = 114.05 degrees and alpha = 11.555 angstrom, angle beta = 92.70 degrees for the orange and yellow forms of 1, respectively, and there are notable structure differences for CuI (PPh3) (L) in these two solids. When loaded into a mesoporous silica, the emission blue shift becomes greater, indicating a strong rigidochromic effect at room temperature. The emission from such copper complex loaded mesoporous silica matrix is quenched by oxygen and this quenching has been quantified. (AU)
