Micelles are of increasing importance as versatile carriers for hydrophobic substances and nanoprobes for a wide range of pharmaceutical, diagnostic, medical, and therapeutic applications. A key parameter indicating the formation and stability of micelles is the critical micelle concentration (CMC). In this respect, we determined the CMC of common anionic, cationic, and non-ionic surfactants fluorometrically using different fluorescent probes and fluorescence parameters for signal detection and compared the results with conductometric and surface tension measurements...

In the paper, hydrothermal carbon spheres (HTCs) are functionalized by the 3-aminobenzeneboronic acid (3-APBA) as a fluorescence sensor. The modification carbon spheres (3-APBA-HTCs) have shown excellent selectivity and sensitivity for efficient determination of L-tryptophan (L-Trp). The fluorescence sensor can selectively achieve the "On-Off" switchable functionality for L-Trp at an extremely low detection limit of 0.50 × 10- 5 mol/L.

An efficient and highly selective pyrene-thiophene conjugate has been reported as a dual sensor for Hg2+ and cysteamine (an important drug for genetic disorder). The sensor displays a turn-on fluorescence response towards Hg2+ in a 2:1 stoichiometric ratio via excimer formation with a detection limit as low as of 30.6 nM. The excimer emission upon binding with Hg2+ has been rationalized by experimental as well as theoritical studies. Moreover, the [probe-Hg2+] adduct functions as an efficient sensor for cysteamine...

Experimental studies in the aqueous solution are crucial for the detection of metal cations in environmental and biological media. Polymer materials allow to work in aqueous media for fluorescent substances which are insoluble in water. Fluorescence sensor studies of the phenanthroimidazole imine compound (PI) synthesized previously by our group were performed in the polymer medium and the selective response to Fe (III) cation was obtained. The resulting sensor exhibited a selective fluorescence quenching effect to Fe (III)...

The present work describes the photophysical behavior of a saturated fatty acid (palmitic acid) containing N-acetylated dansylamide derivative (DAN-PA) into biologically important organized assembly such as β-cyclodextrin (β-CD), Tween-20 (T-20) and 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) lipid bilayer membrane. The results were compared by using another N-acetylated dansylamide conjugate having a short hydrophobic tail, DAN-ACYL. Long hydrophobic tail (saturated fatty acid) containing dansylamide conjugate (DAN-PA) shows more efficient binding interactions with the β-CD as compared to the short tail containing dansylamide derivative (DAN-ACYL)...

Photophysical properties of BODIPY dyes containing acetyl acetone and benzoyl acetone BF2 unit as an electron accepting substituent at beta position linked via double bond have been investigated using a wide range of solvents of different polarities. The substitution effect at beta position of the BODIPY dyes on their absorption, emission and quantum yield of fluorescence have been the aim of present study. For the synthesized BODIPY dyes fluorescence quantum yields and lifetimes show very sharp decrease with an increase in the solvent polarity, suggesting the involvement of highly polar ICT state de-excitation mechanism along with the local excitation process...

Density functional theory and time-dependent density functional theory computations were used to understand the electronic and photophysical parameters of NIR β-thiophene-fused BF2-azadipyrromethene dyes. The computed data are in good agreement with those obtained experimentally and they provide insights into the origin of red shifted optical spectra compared to the parent aza-BODIPY, low Stokes shift, non-linear optical responses and quantitative description of the singlet-triplet energy gap. The resultant decrease in the HOMO - LUMO energy gap is responsible for the red shift...

Being short of conventional chromophores, polyacrylamide is generally not regarded as a fluorescent material. Exactly the polymerization of dilute solutions of acrylamide and N,N'-methylenebisacrylamide led to thick liquids at 60 °C, showing no fluorescence. Things changed when the phase transition of water was involved. The squeezing effect of ice crystals not only created polymeric solids (cryogels) at - 20 °C, but also endowed them unexpected fluorescence emissions. The macroporous cryogels are mainly blue fluorescent polymers...

A novel naphthalimide-based colorimetric and fluorescent turn-on chemosensor for Al(3+) was synthesized and characterized with spectroscopic techniques. In MeOH solution, BPAM showed high selectivity and sensitivity to Al(3+) by a 60-fold fluorescence enhancement and blue-shift absorption with visible color changes attributed to the contribution of chelation enhanced fluorescence (CHEF) and inhibition of intramolecular charge transfer (ICT). A 1:1 BPAM-Al(3+) complex confirmed by job's plot and HRMS with a binding constant of 6...

Strong surface (metal) enhanced fluorescence (SEF or MEF) is observed from clusters and single E coli bacteria cells labeled with Carbon nanodots (CDs), which were synthesized from date pits. The enhancement factor (EF) for SEF of the cell clusters were close to 50 for both 533 and 633 nm laser excitation wavelength. Those EFs are ratios of emission peak areas from CD labeled cell clusters on gold film to the peak areas of the same batch cell clusters on glass substrate. SEF with 633 nm excitation performed better than SEF with 532 nm excitation, achieving higher fluorescence intensity and much higher contrast...
