A new fluorescent mesoporous polyurethane (PU) (9) was synthesized by reaction between 2,2'-(methylenebis(4,1-phenylene))bis(5-isocyanatoisoindoline-1,3-dione) (Diisocyanate) (5) and 4,4',4″-((1,3,5-triazine-2,4,6-triyl)tris (azanediyl))triphenol (Triol, TO) (8) (molar ratio 3:2). PU was characterized by using FT-IR, H-NMR, XRD, UV-Vis, TGA, Nitrogen adsorption-desorption isotherm, BET, FE-SEM and Photoluminescence (PL) analyses. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time that a fluorescent polyurethane has been made without the use of commercial fluorescent materials. Read More
