The solid state properties of cruciform pentamers 1-4 are examined in thin film preparation, in the single crystalline state and in nanoparticle formulations; emission behavior was found to vary substantially with the solid state morphology. This type of behaviour is an excellent way to manipulate the emissive properties of conjugated π-systems.
