We report the first macrocycle-based ratiometric molecular thermometer exploiting the conformational thermosensitivity of a calixarene functionalized with two different fluorophores. Thanks to the dependence on temperature of the efficiency of excitation energy transfer between the organic fluorophores, the thermometer works over a 60 °C-wide temperature range with a sensitivity of 4% °C-1.

Abstract

We report the first macrocycle-based ratiometric molecular thermometer exploiting the conformational thermosensitivity of a calixarene functionalized with two different fluorophores. Thanks to the dependence on temperature of the efficiency of excitation energy transfer between the organic fluorophores, the thermometer works over a 60 °C-wide temperature range with a sensitivity of 4% °C-1.
