Original Abstract

Hyaluronan is a chemical, which has prevalent hydrophilic character in native form. The chain contains also hydrophobic parts, but these areas are protected in the solution by probably highly organized molecules of water. Therefore the interactions between native hydrophilic biopolymers and hydrophobic species must be somehow supported. In this work we used drying method to open up the binding sites. For purposes of this study the fluorescence probes (perylene, prodan) were used as indicators. Efficiency of drying of the system was studied by fluorescence spectroscopy. For various probes specific parameters were monitored, which provided information about polarity of environment, in which fluorescence probes molecules were soluble.
