Photochemistry: A series of emissive gold(III) complexes with fluorene-containing cyclometalating ligands exhibits strong phosphorescence and long-lived excited states with emission quantum yields and lifetimes up to 58 % and 305 μs, respectively. These complexes can sensitize energy up-conversion of 9,10-diphenylanthracene (DPA; see picture) and display rich two-photon absorption properties (TPA; TTA=triplet-triplet annihilation).
