An electron donor-acceptor dyad based on BODIPY (acceptor) and anthracene (donor) plays either the role of sensitizer or emitter in triplet-triplet annihilation photon up-conversion (TTA-UC). This Janus-like behavior was achieved via altering the relative ordering of charge-transfer and local excited state energies in the dyad through the polarity of TTA-UC media.
