The versatility and many appealing properties of DNA nucleobase derivatives have made them the target of investigations for use in a wide range of possible applications: from medicine to novel materials for nanotechnology and biocompatible electronics. By modifying a nucleobase with a photoactive moiety, one is able to control the binding between nucleobases by irradiating the molecules with light of specific wavelengths.
In this talk, Matjaž Ličen will present the results of their studies of Langmuir and Langmuir-Blodgett films from lipophilic derivatives of nucleobases with an emphasis on the behaviour of films from azo-functionalised lipophilic guanosine derivatives and their response to irradiation with light that triggers photoisomerization.
In this 40 min webinar you will:
