Gold nanocluster-based light-controlled fluorescence molecular switch

Author affiliations

Abstract

The light-controlled fluorescence molecular switch was prepared with Au nanoclusters and thiolated spiropyran dyes. Its fluorescence can be reversibly modulated using UV/Visible light due to fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) from the Au NCs to the open-ring state merocyanine of the spiropyran molecules.
