In its Noteworthy Chemistry page, the American Chemical Society website has highlighted the work of Professor Ramesh Jasti and his Research Group on the blue shift of Cyclo-p-phenylene emissions as a nanohoop size increases.

The emission color of an inorganic semiconductor quantum dot shifts bathochromically with increasing particle size. Similarly, the luminescence color of a linear p-phenylene (LPP) oligomer red-shifts with increasing chain length. [n]Cyclo-p-phenylenes (CPPs) are cyclic forms of LPPs, or “nanohoops”.

The aim of their work is to determine how the emission color of CPPs change with ring size.
