Solvent Effect on the Absorption and Fluorescence Emission Spectra of Some Purine Derivatives: Spectrofluorometric Quantitative Studies

Journal of Solution Chemistry (Impact Factor: 1.18). 07/2008; 37(7):895-917. DOI: 10.1007/s10953-008-9289-8


The absorption and emission spectra of six purine derivatives: adenine (I), N(9)-hydroxyethyladenine (II), N(6)-acetyladenine (III), N(6)-isobutyryladenine (IV), guanine (V), and N(2),N(9)-diacetylguanine (VI) have been investigated. The effects of solvent and pH on the positions of λ
max  (absorption) and λ
max  (emission) of these compounds were determined. Correlations between the absorption wavelength (λ
max ) of these organic compounds and the solvent parameters (D,n,E) or (K,M,N) show that the peak position is affected mainly by specific- and non-specific types of interactions between the solvent and
solute. Solvent effects on the electronic absorption band shifts are indicative of the extent of charge reorganization of
the solute molecules upon electronic excitation. The Stokes shift (ν
em) was correlated with the orientation polarizability (Δf) and was found to depend mainly on the dielectric constant and the refractive index of the solvents. This shift reflects
the influence of the equilibrium solvent arrangement around the excited solute molecule, which rearranges inertially due to
the instantaneous charge redistribution upon radiative deactivation to the electronic ground state. A spectrofluorometric
analysis technique was applied for the quantitative analysis of the components of a ternary mixture of compounds (I–III).

    ABSTRACT: Transition metal purine complexes were synthesized. These are 3 iron, 5 cobalt, 4 nickel, 5 copper, 2 cadmium, 2 mercury, 2 mixed (Ni-Cr, Co-Cu). The ligands used are: adenine, guanine, adenine schiff base of acetylacetone, adenine schiff base of salicylaldehyde, adenine azo resorcinol. The ligands and their complexes were characterized by elemental analyses, spectral and thermal measurements. The analytical data of the complexes typified the formation of stoichiometries 1:1, 1:2, 1:3 (M: L). The complexes are with different geometries: square planar, tetrahedral and octahedral. The mode of bonding was identified by IR spectra.

    ABSTRACT: a b s t r a c t The interactions of the N-methylquinoline-3-amine (MMeAQ) with three cyclodextrins and micelles have been investigated using fluorescence spectroscopic techniques. It is shown that cationic and neutral sur-factants enhance the fluorescence quantum yield of the MMeAQ in water by breakup of aggregates of MMeAQ and incorporation into the micelles. However such enhancement is not observed in SDS micelle. The fluorescence enhancement of MMeAQ in b-cyclodextrin host is rationalized in the light of the stoi-chiometry of the inclusion complexes. There is no such interaction is observed for a-CD and c-CD. Quan-tum chemical calculation has also been performed in order to support the experimental findings of cationic species.

    ABSTRACT: We studied the surface modification of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) by grafting with methacrylic acid (MAA) through plasma-induced polymerization method. The results show that the grafting yield increases with the increase of reaction temperature. The grafting yield is in proportion to the increase of monomer concentration. The grafting yield increases along with the prolonging of reaction time. The solvent has great influence to the grafting reaction. The grafting yield increases with the increase of volume ratio R, which is defined by the volume of water to the volume of alcohol, when using alcohol and water as mixed solvent. The grafting yield is not zero when only using methanol, ethanol or isopropanol as the solvent. The red shift in UV spectrum could be ascribed to different reactive activities of MAA in different solvents, which also can explain the change trend of the grafting yield. The UV-vis absorbance difference and the FTIR integrated peak area of the CO stretching increase steadily with the increase of grafting yield, which are almost linear relationship. It was confirmed that MAA was grafted onto the PET surface in terms of UV-vis spectrophotometric, FTIR and atomic force microscopy analysis. © 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci, 2010
