Original Abstract

This contribution is focused on using FRET between perylene as a donor fluorophore and fluorescein as an acceptor in three different systems of cationic micelles (consisting of three cationic surfactants with different hydrophobic chain length – TTAB (C14), Septonex (C15) and CTAB (C16)) as form of a nanoscale ruler. Concentration of perylene in micelles was kept constant and the amount of fluorescein (hydrophilic probe located in the solution surrounding micelles) varied up to ratio 1:10. Occurrence of energy transfer in each sample was quantified by measuring donor lifetime in presence of increasing amount of the acceptor.
