The synthesis of several 1,3,6,8-tetraethynylpyrene derivatives is reported. The effect of extended acetylenic conjugation on their absorption and fluorescence-emission properties is studied. Significant bathochromic shifts of both the absorption and fluorescence emission bands are observed. These derivatives emit fluorescence in the visible (400–550 nm) region.
