Abstract

A series of compounds made up by linking methylnaphthalene fragments at both ends of different polyamine chains have shown to behave as pH-regulated molecular machines driven by light and fluorescence emission studies have proved the formation of an excimer between the two naphthalene units whose appearance, fluorescence intensity and decay times depend on the pH value of the media.
