Meanwhile, it can be seen that the excitation spectra of the composites represent obvious blueshift compared with the 326 nm peak value for the pure complex, and especially for the (96/4) and (93/7) composites, the peaks are blueshifted by 17 nm, indicating that TCA macromolecules may influence the excitation process of the added complex.
