Paper Abstract

This paper presents the results of spectroscopic investigations on a synthetic dye solution with high fluorescence quantum yield and mixtures of this solution with colloidal silver particles. Basing on the results obtained the influence of the metal nano-particles presence on the changes of intensity and fluorescence quantum yield of the dye was determined. The purpose of the investigation was to determine the usefulness of fluoresceine in the structure of sensors and indicators of metal presence in the environment. The measurements were made for fluoresceine water solutions and its mixtures in the ranges of concentrations from 10-6 M to 10-3 M. A significant growth of the fluorescence quantum yield in the presence of colloidal particles was only observed in the range of concentrations from 2•10-4 M to 8•10-4 M.
