A reassessment of the association between azulene and [60]fullerene. Possible pitfalls in the determination of binding constants through fluorescence spectroscopy

Abstract

We show here that the recently reported surprisingly large association constant (K = 7.6 × 104 M−1) between azulene and [60]fullerene is due to experimental artifacts, pointing out potential errors in the characterization of association equilibria by fluorescence spectroscopy, and suggesting the best experimental practices.
