Organic nano-cocrystals of functional dyes of perylene and a perylene derivative were successfully prepared by the reprecipitation method. The particle sizes, optical properties, and powder X-ray diffraction patterns of nano-cocrystals were evaluated. Typically, the size with size distribution of nano-cocrystals was 55 ± 15 nm when the molar ratio of perylene to the perylene derivative was 50 : 50. The particular intermolecular electronic interaction between perylene and the perylene derivative in the nano-cocrystal state was observed by absorption and fluorescence spectra measurements. The powder X-ray diffraction pattern analysis confirmed that the structure of nano-cocrystals was different from those prepared from perylene and the perylene derivative. The nano-cocrystal having unique physicochemical properties will be potentially classified as a new type of functional nanomaterial.
