Abstract

Grubbs cross-metathesis has been used to functionalize octavinylsilsesquioxane with fluorescent vinylbiphenyl-modified chromophores to design new hybrid organic-inorganic nanomaterials. Those macromolecules have been characterized by NMR, microanalyses, MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry and photoluminescence. This last method was shown to be an interesting tool in the analysis of the purity of the cube derivatives.
