Summary of "Fluorescence of N-acylated dansylamide with a long hydrophobic tail: sensitive response to premicellar aggregation of sodium deoxycholate."

The present work describes the synthesis and photophysical studies of two fluorescent dansylamide derivatives, in which the amine group is acylated by a long hydrophobic chain (a part of a biologically relevant palmitic acid) and by a short hydrophobic tail (a part of acetic acid). The long chain tethered dansyl analogue is successfully utilized in estimating critical micellar concentration (CMC) of bile salts (NaDC, NaC) as well as anionic and cationic surfactants (SDS, CTAB) with the help of enhanced fluorescence intensity facilitated by better solubilization of the molecule in microheterogeneous media. The long chain tethered dansylamide derivative shows significant fluorescence solvatochromism with a red shift (ca. 4000 cm(-1)) from hexane to water. In contrast, the solvatochromism exhibited by the parent/short acyl chain analogue is much less (ca. 2230 cm(-1) from hexane to water) and the fluorescence is not sensitive to micellization. Interestingly, the long chain tethered fluorescent probe shows high sensitivity towards premicellar aggregation of sodium deoxycholate (NaDC) bile salt, through a clear blue shift of emission maxima and concomitant enhancement of fluorescent intensity. Such an observation of fluorescence sensing of premicellar aggregation is unusual.

Measurement of the intensity and quality of fluorescence.

Light-induced change in a chromophore, resulting in the loss of its absorption of light of a particular wave length. The photon energy causes a conformational change in the photoreceptor proteins affecting PHOTOTRANSDUCTION. This occurs naturally in the retina (ADAPTATION, OCULAR) on long exposure to bright light. Photobleaching presents problems when occurring in PHOTODYNAMIC THERAPY, and in FLUORESCENCE MICROSCOPY. On the other hand, this phenomenon is exploited in the technique, FLUORESCENCE RECOVERY AFTER PHOTOBLEACHING, allowing measurement of the movements of proteins and LIPIDS in the CELL MEMBRANE.
