A major challenge facing humanity is developing renewable source of energy. Following the biological blueprint of the natural photosynthesis is possible design synthetic systems for converting light into stored energy: the so called artificial antenna systems. The encapsulation of ordered chromophore molecules into one dimensional zeolite channel systems results in host-guest compounds suitable for the development of novel optical materials such as lenses, infrared light-emitting diodes (used in telecommunications) or dye nanostructured materials for optical data storage . X-ray powder diffraction study of zeolite K-L loaded with 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2 fluorenone-dye (FL) molecules per unit cell (ZL/FL hybrid) , was carried out to understand the functionality of these host-guest systems from the structural point of view. These data evidenced a significant change of the unit cell parameters due to the embedding of FL into the ZL 12-membered channels. The Rietveld refinements revealed that the maximum loading is 1.5 FL molecules per unit cell. A strong interaction between FL carbonyl group and two extraframework potassium cations is proved by the short bond distances which make this composite very stable.
