Fluorescence Quenching Studies of Near-Infrared Fluorophores

Volume 43, Number 8 (Dec. 1989) Page 1450-1455

Andrews-Wilberforce, Daniel; Patonay, Gabor

Near-infrared laser dyes were studied with the use of conventional fluorescence quenching. A systematic study of the effects of different quenchers and temperature on the fluorescence of near-infrared fluorophores is presented. Differences in the quenching of near-infrared fluorophores were observed for quenching by ionic quenchers. Quenching with ionic and nonionic quenchers led to nonlinear quenching results.
