Designing Tiny Molecules That Glow in Water to Shed Light on Biological Processes
Posted August 15, 2012 3:28 PM
From Phys.org - latest science and technology news stories:
University of Miami scientists have developed a way to switch fluorescent molecules on and off within aqueous environments, by strategically trapping the molecules inside water-soluble particles and controlling them with ultraviolet light. The new system can be used to develop better fluorescent probes for biomedical research.
