Abstract

original image

Durchmarsch der Elektronen: Perylendiimid-Chromophore in DNA-Haarnadelstrukturen dienen als Basenpaar-Ersatz und bilden eine reißverschlussartige Einschubstruktur (siehe Bild). Bei der Einelektronenreduktion wurde ein Elektronen-Hüpfen innerhalb der Chromophorenstapel beobachtet.
