Fluorescence spectroscopy and its applications: A Review

Aswathy Bose, Irene Thomas, Kavitha G, Elessy Abraham


Fluorescence spectroscopy is a rapid, sensitive method for characterizing molecular environments and events samples. Fluorimetry is chosen for its extraordinary sensitivity, high specificity, simplicity and low cost as compared to other analytical techniques. It is widely accepted and powerful technique that is used for a variety of environmental, industrial, medical diagnostics, DNA sequencing, forensics, genetic analysis and biotechnology applications. It is a valuable analytical tool for both quantitative and qualitative analysis. This article presents a brief overview of the theory of fluorescence spectroscopy, together with examples of applications of this technique in organic and inorganic chemistry, medical diagnosis, medical science etc.
