Paper Abstract

Acetic acid and ethanol solutions can emit fluorescence when induced by 253.7nm UV-light. In this paper, fluorescence spectral characteristics of acetic acid and ethanol solutions are analyzed and studied in theory and in experiment. The results indicate that both acetic acid and ethanol can emit two fluorescence spectral bands, one is from 330nm to 493nm and the other is from 534nm to 665nm. The emitting fluorescence intensity is very sensitive to the solutions concentrations, and fluorescence quenching occurs in some solutions of the two samples. Furthermore, the physical mechanism of fluorescence emission of acetic acid and ethanol molecules is analyzed based on the theory of molecule orbital structure, and the quenching mechanism are studied by the dynamic process. Investigation on the native fluorescence spectrum of the two solvent and their characteristics will contribute to the study of the fluorescence spectra when they serve as solute, hydrolysis catalyst and food additive.
