Abstract: The fluorescence quenching and the fluorescence decay of a series of dendritic bis-(8-hydroxyquinoline) derivatives (Gn-QMQ, n=1~3) were studied. The quenching rate constant decreased and fluorescence lifetime increased with the generation n increase, which resulted from an increased site-isolating effect of the dendritic structure on the core. Photophysical studies in different solvents indicated that there was an enhanced site-isolating effect in CH3CN.

Key words: Poly(aryl ether) dendrimer, 8-hydroxyquinoline, Fluorescence quenching, Fluorescence decay
