The absorption and emission spectral properties of thioflavin T (TFT+) in Nafion (Nf) and cellulose matrices have been studied. Formation of the emittive dimer is observed in both matrices. The monomer TFT+ emission is blueshifted in Nafion membrane (Nf), whereas it is red-shifted in cellulose membrane when compared with the emission in aqueous solution. The dimer emission of TFT+ in the Na+-Nf membrane undergoes off-on switching with acids and alkalis. The TFT+ molecule undergoes protonation… CONTINUE READING
