In the present work, 9-anthraceneacetic acid (1) has been selected as a simple, water-compatible derivative of the anthracene chromophore to investigate the photophysical and photochemical behavior upon binding to human and bovine serum albumins (HSA and BSA) and alpha-acid glycoproteins (HAAG and BAAG). The UV-vis absorption spectrum of 1 exhibited the typical four maxima between 320 and 400 nm, which were slightly red-shifted in the presence of proteins. These minor changes suggested the…

Intraprotein formation of a long wavelength absorbing complex and inhibition of excited-state deprotonation in a chiral hydroxybiphenyl.
The fluorescence spectra of (S)-BPOH in PBS, after addition of HSA, revealed a progressive diminution of the phenolate band, indicating that excited-state deprotonation is disfavored within the hydrophobic protein cavities.
Photochemical and photophysical properties of dibenzoylmethane derivatives within protein.
In the case of MeAB and PrAB derivatives, binding to HSA was associated with a significant increase of their triplet lifetimes as compared to acetonitrile, and the Norrish type II process has been considered as a model to evaluate the influence of the protein microenvironment on the photoreactivity.
Titanium-oxo cluster with 9-anthracenecarboxylate antennae: a fluorescent and photocurrent transfer material.
The results indicate that 9-AC is an effective photosensitizer and cluster 1 shows higher photocurrent intensity for its multiantenna structure in comparison with that of 2.
Photoactive assemblies of organic compounds and biomolecules: drug-protein supramolecular systems.
The use of proteins as supramolecular hosts modifies the photoreactivity of encapsulated substrates by providing protection against oxygen or other external reagents, by imposing conformational restrictions in the binding pockets, or by influencing the stereochemical outcome.

Catalytic Bio‐Supramolecular Photochirogenesis: Batch‐Operated Enantiodifferentiating Photocyclodimerization of 2‐Anthracenecarboxylate with Human Serum Albumin
It is demonstrated that bovine and human serum albumins mediate the [4+4] photocyclodimerization of 2-anthracenecarboxylate (AC) to afford stereoisomeric anti-head-to-tail, syn- head-to thetail, and syn-head -to-head cyclodimers.

Kinetic Stabilization of Blue‐Emissive Anthracenes: Phenylene Bridging Works Best
Abstract In attempts at kinetically stabilizing blue‐emissive anthracenes, a series of 9,10‐diaryl substituted derivatives were tested for their photochemical and photooxidative persistence. A major
