Abstract

The two families of fluorescent PET (photoinduced electron transfer) sensors (1-9) show that the effective proton density near the surface of several micelle membranes changes over 2-3 orders of magnitude as the microlocation of the sensor (with respect to the membrane) is altered via hydrophobic tuning.
