Abstract:

Among the important results discovered by this research are 1 The ability of luminescence probes to determine the nature and extent of binding of substrates to cyclodextrins 2 The use of fluorescence probes to determine critical micelle concentrations, to reveal surfactantpolymer interactions 3 The utility of fluorescence probes for investigation of non-ionic surfactants and of ionicnon-ionic surfactant interactions 4 The ability of fluorescence probes to investigate the interactions of metals and surfactant crown ethers 5 The use of phosphorescence metal complexes to study the nature of metal binding to DNA 6 The utility of fluorescence probes to reveal temperature and pressure effects on the properties of water soluble block co-polymers 7 The ability of fluorescence probes to elucidate the nature and mechanisms of cation formation and proton transfer in aqueous systems. Finally, an extensive review of photochemical reactions in micelles was published. Keywords Hydrophobic interactions Polyelectroytes.
