Applications of Fluorescence Spectroscopy and Electronic Structure Theory to Systems of Materials and Biological Relevance. The photophysics of curcumin was studied in micelles and the solvation dynamics were probed. The high-energy ionic liquid HEATN was also studied using the fragment molecular orbital method. The solvation dynamics of the HEATN system were determined. This marks the first study of the solvation dynamics in a triazolium ionic liquid system.
