Workshop Details
Shape-Responsive Fluorophores
06/23/2015 - 06/27/2015
Meeting Description:

Molecular fluorophores may be minimally or dramatically affected by their environment. When the effect of the environment is significant, the shape, intensity, and decay rate of the fluorescence can provide valuable information about the nature of that environment. Nevertheless, most fluorophores undergo modest responses upon changes in environment, and such changes are not always readily understood on the basis of ordinary environmental interactions. The workshop will be aimed at how the sensitivity of the photophysics/photochemistry of various chromophores and their fluorescence recovery can be manipulated to obtain new probes of wide utility in photophysics and fluorescent sensors. The development and extension of this topological responsiveness forms the major aim of the workshop.
Several topics will be explicitly discussed. An aggregation-induced emission phenomenon in a wide range of organic fluorophores; the fluorescent rotors; mechanofluorescence; encapsulation of fluorescent probes in small hosts; and the development of “turn-on” fluorescent ligands for proteins and DNA/RNA.
The workshop will focus on the phenomenology, origin, and the practical application of “shape-selective fluorophores”, and will include a wide variety of both theorists and experimenters working actively on these systems. We expect that the Telluride meeting will bring together the scientists, both academic and industrial, from all over the world.

The registration fee includes a hot, catered lunch on Monday and Wednesday.

This Telluride Workshop will be accompanied by a themed issue of the Journal of Materials Chemistry C scheduled to appear in early 2016.
