Paper Abstract

We investigated the influence of end-to-end diffusion on intramolecular energy transfer between a naphthalene donor and dansyl acceptor linked by polymethylene chain. A range of viscosities of 0.6 - 200cP were obtained using propylene glycol at different temperatures (0-80°C) and methanol at 20°C. The intensity decays of naphthalene were measured in frequency-domain. Several theoretical models, including distance distributions were used to fit the data. The results indicate that end-to-end diffusion of flexible donor - acceptor pairs can be readily detected and quantified using frequency-domain fluorometry.
