Research Impact & Significance: The picture shows the sublimation product of 2-(2′-hydroxyphenyl)benzoxazole, which is referred to as HBO. HBO exhibits strong fluorescent properties which are useful across a vast range of disciplines, from material sciences to chemical biology. The goal of our research is to create organic compounds which are capable of emitting light at various wavelengths across the visible spectrum, hence producing white light. By exploiting the unique properties of HBO, this may be achieved.
