Fluorescence characteristics of protonated form of 6-hydroxyquinoline in Nafion film.


Fluorescence characteristics of 6-hydroxyquinoline (6-HQ) have been studied at room temperature in Nafion(R) film by steady state and nano-second time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy. The fluorescence spectrum exhibits single emission band corresponding to the protonated form of 6-HQ in this matrix. However, the decay fits with two or three exponential… (More)
