Paper Abstract

In order to find eco-friendly materials for different applications an important research effort was devoted to the materials science in the last decade. A particular attention attracted the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). The interest is due to its versatility, biodegradability, abundance and their origin from renewable sources. DNA based new materials, functionalized with hexadecyltrimethylammonium chloride (CTMA) and aromatic compounds were prepared. Solutions with two different concentrations of aromatic compounds were obtained in butanol. The obtained, new complexes were processed into good optical quality thin films by spin coating method. Films were deposited on glass substrates and characterized for their spectroscopic, linear and nonlinear optical properties. The third-order nonlinear optical (NLO) properties of thin films were determined by the optical third-harmonic generation technique at 1 064.2 nm fundamental wavelength. The obtained materials, with improved fluorescence efficiency, present a potential interest for application in photonics.
