Abstract

original image

Einblick in supramolekulare Objekte: Mit optischen Methoden und konfokaler Rastermikroskopie wurde der intermolekulare Energietransfer (ENT) in gemischten Vesikeln aus Donor/Acceptor-Oligo(p-phenylenvinylenen) (OPVs) in Wasser verfolgt (siehe Bild). Diese Beobachtung des Austauschprozesses zwischen getrennten Donor- und Acceptorvesikeln belegte, dass sich die Eigenschaften einzelner Vesikel von denen der Lösung unterscheiden.
