Energy transfer of ionic dyes in mixed surfactant vesicle

Energy transfer of ionic dyes in mixed surfactant vesicle Stable vesicles composed of cationic and anionic single-tailed-surfactant were prepared, and their image obtained by electron microscopy with negative staining technique. Significant fluorescence enhancement for acridine orange in vesicle with regards to water has been observed. In heterogeneous vesicle solution composed of mixed cationic and anionic surfactants for the energy transfer between acridine orange (D) and pyronine (A), the Förster dipole-dipole model was valid, and it is interesting to note that the energy transfer rate constant (kET) was smaller than that in homogeneous aqueous solution. On the inside and outside of the stable vesicle, immiscible water solution of acridine orange and pyronine could be obtained, and the distance calculated from the energy transfer between D and A separated by the bilayer membrane implied that the location of ionic dye molecules was in the Gouy-Chapman layers of the vesicles. Furthermore, due to the electrostatic absorption of the dye molecules to charged headgroups of surfactants, acridine orange and pyronine accumulated and aggregated to the vesicle bilayer membrane.
