Amino-[1,1′]-biphenyl-containing 3-aryl-[1,2,4]triazolo[4,3-c]quinazoline derivatives with fluorescent properties have been designed and synthesized. The type of annelation of the triazole ring to the pyrimidine one has been unambiguously confirmed by means of an X-ray diffraction (XRD) method; the molecules are non-planar, and the aryl substituents form the pincer-like conformation. The UV/Vis and photoluminescent properties of target compounds were investigated in two solvents of different polarities and in a solid state. The samples emit a broad range of wavelengths and display fluorescent quantum yields of up to 94% in toluene solutions. 5-(4’-Diphenylamino-[1,1′]-biphenyl-4-yl)-3-(4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)-[1,2,4]triazolo[4,3-c]quinazoline exhibits the strongest emission in toluene and a solid state. Additionally, the solvatochromic properties were studied for the substituted [1,2,4]triazolo[4,3-c]quinazolines. Moreover, the changes in absorption and emission spectra have been demonstrated upon the addition of water to MeCN solutions, which confirms aggregate formation, and some samples were found to exhibit aggregation-induced emission enhancement. Further, the ability of triazoloquinazolines to detect trifluoroacetic acid has been analyzed; the presence of TFA induces changes in both absorption and emission spectra, and acidochromic behavvior was observed for some triazoloquinazoline compounds. Finally, electronic-structure calculations with the use of quantum-chemistry methods were performed for synthesized compounds.
