Abstract

For many species the study of photophysical behaviour by fluorescence spectroscopy has been confined to low concentration as a result of the influence of the inner filter effect. In this paper we report how the total internal reflection technique of evanescent wave fluorescence spectroscopy (EWIFS) allows both the collection of distortion free steady-state fluorescence emission spectra and quantitative analysis of such species, in `bulk' solution environment, to significantly higher concentration than can be achieved with a conventional (right-angle) geometry. A study of two species, the laser dye rhodamine 101 and a novel meso-substituted zinc porphyrin is presented.
