Lipophilic Optical Supramolecular Nano Devices in the Aqueous Phase.
In: Green and Sustainable Chemistry, Vol. 1, No. 1: pp. 1-6
Nano micelles of sodium dodecyl sulphate in water were prepared as local lipophilic media for the organisation of interacting chromophores. Such arrangements were controlled by peripheric substituents to operate either as isolated chromophores or as skew oriented pairs where H-type transitions cause hysochromic absorption and J-type transitions bathochromic fluorescence. As a consequence, large Stokes' shift could be obtained.
