Description

PAMAM dendrimers exhibited fluorescence with corresponding maximum excitation and emission wavelengths of 334 nm and 413 nm, respectively. As these molecules were not conjugated, as was expected among fluorescent compounds, the theory behind the fluorescence of PAMAM dendrimers required further investigation. Quantification of fluorescence was performed by evaluating relative quantum yield values under the different solution conditions. During this study, PAMAM dendrimer were exposed to a variety of ionic strengths while in solution as part of exploring consistency with a conjecture that a mechanism of aggregate induced emissions (AIE) was involved in the fluorescence of dendrimers.
