The fluorescence properties of 2-phenylindole, 2-naphthylindole and 2-anthracenylindole were investigated. 2-Anthracenylindole was newly synthesized by Suzuki-Miyaura's coupling. The fluorescence quantum yield of 2-phenylindole was the highest and the fluorescence emission maximum wavelength of 2-anthracenylindole was the longest. The ab initio quantum chemical calculation of the 2-anthracenylindole showed that the HOMO and LUMO of 2-anthracenylindole were localized in the anthracene moiety.
