1,8-Naphthalimide connected to benzoic acid chloride via methylene group was condensed separately with 3-amino pyridine and 4-amino pyridine and provided compounds 4-(1,3-Dioxo-2,3-dihydro-1H-phenalen-2-ylmethyl)-N-pyridin-3-yl-benzamide 1 and 4-(1,3-Dioxo-2,3-dihydro-1H-phenalen-2-ylmethyl)-N-pyridin-4-yl-benzamide 2. The compounds are characterized by spectral (IR, UV–Visible, 1H and 13C NMR) measurements and supported by their X-ray crystallography. Their photoelectron spectroscopy, SEM and TEM measurements are also made. They are found luminescent in DMF solution as well as in the solid state and form nano-aggregates with enhanced emission (AEE) in aqueous-DMF solution. Their AEE behavior depends on the polarity of the solvents. On grinding, crystalline solids 1 and 2 turn to amorphous and the process is reversible on annealing as supported by their powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) measurements. Both compounds show mechanochromic properties and display multi-stimuli response. Density Functional Theory calculations rationalize their optical data.
