Abstract

We show here that the recently reported surprisingly large association constant (K = 7.6 x 10(4) M-1) between azulene and [60]fullerene is due to experimental artifacts, pointing out potential errors in the characterization of association equilibria by fluorescence spectroscopy, and suggesting the best experimental practices.
