The properties of two series of oligo(2,3-dioxyfunctionalized)naphthalenes which are connected at the 1,4-positions, that is, methoxy derivatives 1-4 and derivatives that possess two pyrene groups on the central scaffolding oxygen functions 5-8, are described. In 1-4, the fluorescence quantum yields increased by about 20-80% as the number of naphthalene units increased. The intramolecular energy transfer quantum yields of 5-8 were around 20% regardless of the number of naphthalene units.
