Energy transfer dyads based on Nile Red.
Additional Document Info
This project was initiated to develop energy transfer dyads emitting in the 600 - 700 nm region by using Nile Red acceptors. Thus fluorescein- and BODIPY-based donors were linked to these acceptors via alkynes or triazoles. The product dyads (1 - 5) have energy transfer efficiencies of 77 - 97% in organic media.
