Fluorescent probes as a research tool in polymer chemistry
Polimery 2005, No 7-8, 520
In the review the types of fluorescent probes and their applications in investigations of properties of solid phase polymers and polymerization kinetics are presented. There are described the structures and photo-physical properties of five types of fluorescent probes, using: excimers formation [Formula (I)]; twisted intramolecular charge transfer (TITC); intramolecular charge transfer (ITC) (including probe Fluoroprene [Formula (II)]; and based on 9-acridine derivatives of aromatic amines [Formulas (III)-(IV)] or organic salts [Formulas (VII) and (VIII), Scheme A]; and using an ability of energy transfer between fluorescent molecules.
Key words: fluorescent probes, structure, photo-physical properties, polymerization kinetics investigation, polymer properties investigation
