Paper Abstract

DNA-Ru(bpy)32+ complex was prepared to study molecular structure and its EL characteristics. Ru(bpy)32+ was associated with duplex of DNA by not only electrostatic interaction but also intercalation in the aqueous solution. Single-molecular structure of DNA-Ru(bpy)32+ complex was analyzed with AFM. We found network structure of DNA-Ru(bpy)32+ complex on the mica substrate, which is similar to naked DNA. The height of DNA-Ru(bpy)32+ complex on the mica substrate was ranging from 0.8 to 1.6 nm, which was higher than the naked DNA (0.5-1.0 nm). This indicates that single-molecular DNA-Ru(bpy)32+ complex forms network structure on the mica substrate. DNA-Ru(bpy)32+ complex was sandwiched with ITO and aluminum electrodes to analyze EL properties. It was revealed that the EL device composed of DNA- Ru(bpy)32+ complex exhibited extremely faster response than the other Ru(bpy)32+ based EL devices. The emission mechanism was discussed.
