Abstract

By using an oligopeptide chain as a functional linker and introducing coumarin 2 and coumarin 343 at the chain ends, an effective photo-induced energy transfer system was constructed and energy transfer from coumarin 2 to coumarin 343 was switched on and off by a solvent-induced helix-coil secondary transition of the oligopeptide chain.
