The photophysical behavior of luminol (LH(2)) was studied in a variety of biologically relevant systems ranging from surfactants, cyclodextrin, and proteins using steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy. It was shown that, out of two possible LH(2) conformers present in solution, the sequestration of relatively less polar structure into the(More)
Fluorescence solvatochromism of lumichrome (LC) was studied by steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy. The excited-state properties of LC do not show any correlation with solvent polarity, however, reasonably good correlation with solvent E(T)(30) parameter was observed. A quantitative estimation of contribution from different(More)
The interaction and binding behavior of the well-known drug sulfadiazine (SDZ) and psychoactive stimulant caffeine (CAF) with human serum albumin (HSA) was monitored by in vitro fluorescence titration and molecular docking calculations under physiological condition. The quenching of protein fluorescence on addition of CAF is due to the formation of(More)
Intramolecular charge transfer (ICT) behavior of trans-ethyl p-(dimethylamino) cinamate (EDAC) and 4-(dimethylamino) cinnamic acid (DMACA) were studied by steady state absorption and emission, picosecond time-resolved fluorescence experiments in various pure and mixed solvent systems. The large fluorescence spectral shift in more polar solvents indicates an(More)
The binding behavior of antibacterial drug sulfadiazine (SDZ) with water soluble globular proteins like bovine as well as human serum albumin (BSA and HSA, respectively) and lysozyme (LYS) was monitored by fluorescence titration and molecular docking calculations. The experimental data reveal that the quenching of the intrinsic protein fluorescence in(More)
The photophysical behavior of the deprotonated form of lumazine (Lum-anion) was studied in biologically relevant surfactant systems like sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) and TritonX-100 (TX-100) and also model water soluble protein, bovine serum albumin (BSA), using steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy(More)
A systematic study on the spectroscopy and photophysical properties of widely used analgesic and anti-pyretic drug acetaminophen (NAPAP) was presented using steady state and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy. The results in homogeneous solvents were compared with those in bio-mimicking environments of cyclodextrin and micellar cavities. Extensive(More)
The effect of solvent on the photoluminescence behavior of luminol was studied by steady-state fluorescence spectroscopy. The fluorescence spectral behavior of luminol is markedly different in polar protic solvents compared to that in aprotic solvents. A quantitative estimation of the contribution from different solvatochromic parameters, like solvent(More)
