Healy, Eamonn F.
Journal of Chemical Education, v84 n8 p1304 Aug 2007
The effective use of fluorescence spectroscopy for determining the binding of the intercalcating agent crhidium bromide to DNA is being described. The analysis used simple measurement techniques and hence can be easily adopted by the students for a better understanding.
