Reversibility of Singlet Oxygen Reactions with Acene-doped Conjugated Polymer Nanoparticles and Thin Films

Zhang, Yimin

The detection of singlet oxygen is very important for understanding its mechanism of action in various chemical, biological, and therapeutic processes. Dialkynyl-substituted acenes react with singlet oxygen rapidly and the cyclo-reversion of the resulting endoperoxides has been well-documented in organic solution. The dialkynyl substitutions also enhances the oxidation stability of the acene and p... read more
