Title: Fluorescent excimers and exciplexes of the purine base derivative 8-phenylethynyl-guanine in DNA hairpins

Abstract

We characterize the ground- and excited-state electronic interactions between nucleobase analog 8-(4'-phenylethynyl)deoxyguanosine,EG, with natural nucleobases and 7-deazaguanine, as well as between adjacentEGbase analogs.
