Friederike Ernst, Timm Heek, Antonio Setaro, Rainer Haag and Stephanie Reich Energy Transfer in Nanotube-Perylene Complexes Advanced Functional Materials 22
A novel perylene-based functional surfactant that suspends nanotubes independent of pH in aqueous solution and forms energy transfer complexes with the nanotube is presented. Upon excitation of the adsorbant an emission from the nanotube is observed, while the adsorbant emission is completely quenched. This energy transfer between the perylene core and the nanotube in biocompatible environments is demonstrated using photoluminescence and is observed for all chiralities.
