A Polyaniline (PAn)/ DNA complex has been successfully prepared by the photopolymerization of dimeric aniline via photocatalytic reaction of Ru(bpy)32+ in the presence of DNA. The reaction occurs even in the solution at pH 3.0 - 6.0, due to the specific local "lower-pH" environment provided by DNA. The PAn in the complex has ordered structure associated with double-helical DNA. The complex contains photocatalyst, Ru(bpy)32+, even after purification and the Ru(bpy)32+ also works as emitting material. A Ru(bpy)32+ complex-based red-emitting diode with a fast turn-on response was successfully fabricated by employing this novel, processable and water-soluble PAn/DNA complex.
