Abstract


Time-resolved fluorescence measurements were performed for a set of n-anthroyloxy fatty acids (n-AS; n = 2, 3, 6, 9, 12, 16) in both solvent and vesicle systems. The Stokes' shifts and the mean relaxation times calculated from the time-resolved emission spectra (TRES) are shown to be strongly dependent on the position of the fluorophore in small unilamellar vesicles (SUV) composed of phosphatidylcholine (PC), while they are essentially independent of the fluorophore position in isotropic paraffin oil. The concept of an intramolecular relaxation process which had been suggested to explain the wavelength dependence of the emission behaviour of the n-AS dyes in viscous solvents is supported by semiempirical calculations showing that a more planar conformation is favoured in the excited compared to the ground state. However, in order to explain the results in vesicle systems, the concept of intramolecular relaxation is not sufficient. Rather, we show that intermolecular solvent relaxation processes play the dominant role for the wavelength dependent emission behaviour in polar, viscous environments.
