Notes

EXPERT: Ruthenium and Spectroscopy for DNA Sensing

Ruthenium polypyridyl complexes have many different properties that can be exploited. The ligands that bind to the ruthenium can be easily modified, the complexes absorb visible light, can be luminescent, and can bind DNA in different ways. I am specifically interested in studying the spectroscopic properties of ruthenium polypyridyl complexes as the environment around them changes, specifically when in the presence of DNA.
