Abstract

This paper reports results which aim to enhance the understanding of mechanisms and transitions taking place in biological systems [1]. In order to mimic these low energy processes, as well as to perform characterization and data acquisition on these processes, we have developed a new methodology. We study the conformational changes of acetylcholine (ACh) during propagation through a nano/microporous polymer system by measuring the fluorescence lifetime of the label molecule - fluorescein.
