Abstract

It has been shown by the use of steady-state and time-resolved fluorimetry and kinetic phosphorescent spectroscopy that a polycationic fullerene derivative forms complexes with eosine Y in solution due to electrostatic interactions. It has been found that singlet excited states of eosine Y are effectively quenched due to either the excitation energy transfer or electron transfer from the dye to the fullerene core. This leads to a substantial increase in the photodynamic activity of the fullerene derivative and the dye in the structure of the complex when it is excited by light in the absorption band of the dye.
