Photon converters based on dye modified oligo- and polysaccharides in nanostructures for optical applications (PolyDye)
It is planned during the course of the project to develop oligo- and polysaccharides equipped with UV-excitable fluorpohores and capable of forming nanostructures. To reach this goal we intend to investigate UV-absorbing heterocycles with emission signals lower than 460 nm. These new photon converters with high quantum yields and sufficient thermal and photochemical stabilities shall allow a covalent modification of oligo- and polysaccharides. The conjugates shall be used as optical whiteners for paper and fibers.
Furthermore, we plan to investigate tailored fluorphores which transform the emission signals of UV-excitable oligo- and polysachaaride based nanoparticles into the region between 460 and 900 nm. These nanoparticles are essential tools for multiplexing in next generation diagnostic applications.
The results based on this project were supported by the free state of Thuringia under the no. 2015 FE 9004 and co-financed by means of the European Union within the framework of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
