The excited-state dynamics of biotin-spacer-Lucifer-Yellow (LY) constructs bound to avidin (Avi) and streptavidin (Sav) was investigated using femtosecond spectroscopy. Two different locations in the proteins, identified by molecular dynamics simulations of Sav, namely the entrance of the binding pocket and the protein surface, were probed by varying the(More)
Optical spectroscopy and nanosecond flash photolysis (Nd:YAG laser, 355 nm, pulse duration 5 ns, mean energy 5 mJ/pulse) were used to study the photochemistry of Fe(III)(C2O4)3(3-) complex in aqueous solutions. The main photochemical process was found to be intramolecular electron transfer from the ligand to Fe(III) ion with formation of a primary radical(More)
Facile access to complex systems is crucial to generate the functional materials of the future. Herein, we report self-organizing surface-initiated polymerization (SOSIP) as a user-friendly method to create ordered as well as oriented functional systems on transparent oxide surfaces. In SOSIP, self-organization of monomers and ring-opening disulfide(More)
The ultrafast dynamics in the interior of planar aligned multibilayers of 1,2-dilauroyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (dilauroylphosphatidylcholine, DLPC) are investigated using 2D IR vibrational echo spectroscopy. The nonpolar and water insoluble vibrational dynamics probe, tungsten hexacarbonyl (W(CO)6), is located in the alkane interior of the membranes.(More)
Matching matters when building supramolecular n/p-heterojunction photosystems on solid supports that excel with efficient photocurrent generation, important critical thickness, smooth surfaces, and flawless responsiveness to functional probes for the existence of operational intraand interlayer recognition motifs. BHOSALE, Rajesh Shivajirao, et al.(More)
The photophysical properties of a series of helicene cations in various solvents have been investigated using stationary and time-resolved spectroscopy. These compounds fluoresce in the near infrared region with a quantum yield ranging between 2 and 20% and a lifetime between 1 and 12 ns, depending of the solvent. No clear solvent dependence could be(More)
In this study, we describe synthesis, characterization, and zipper assembly of yellow p-oligophenyl naphthalenediimide (POP-NDI) donor-acceptor hybrids. Moreover, we disclose, for the first time, results from the functional comparison of zipper and layer-by-layer (LBL) assembly as well as quartz crystal microbalance (QCM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), and(More)
The interaction of a series of chiral cationic [4]helicene derivatives, which differ by their substituents, with double-stranded DNA has been investigated by using a combination of spectroscopic techniques, including time-resolved fluorescence, fluorescence anisotropy, and linear dichroism. Addition of DNA to helicene solutions results to a hypochromic(More)
The ultrafast structural dynamics inside the bilayers of dilauroylphosphatidylcholine (DLPC) and dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine vesicles with 70, 90, and 125 nm diameters were directly measured with 2D IR vibrational echo spectroscopy. The antisymmetric CO stretch of tungsten hexacarbonyl was used as a vibrational probe and provided information on spectral(More)
