Energy transfer processes in supramolecular light-harvesting systems

Abstract:

This dissertation attempts to understand how energy transfer in a molecular wire and a spherical organic assembly are affected by molecular structure. The molecular wire is a DNA-hybrid structure composed of a strand of thymine bases appended by a cyanine dye. Hydrogen bonded to each base is a naphthalene-derivative molecule. Using time-integrated photoluminescence and time-correlated single photon counting measurements, energy transfer from the naphthalene donors to the cyanine acceptors ...
