Observation of the rare chrysene excimer

Author affiliations

Abstract

Formation of the so far elusive chrysene excimer in solution is achieved by using DNA as a supramolecular scaffold. Oligonucleotides possessing one or two chrysene building blocks have been synthesized. Chrysene excimer fluorescence has been unambiguously observed in DNA double strands, as well as in single strands containing two neighbouring chrysenes.
