© 2020 The Royal Society of Chemistry.The incorporation into rigid silica host structures leads successfully to a significant luminescence enhancement of two zinc(ii) dipyrrins, known to be weak emitters in solution. One of these complexes shows a fluorescence efficiency of 55% and prolonged photo-stability once entrapped in silica, demonstrating high potential for applications in energy conversion.
