Double-exponential decay has been observed for tryptophan and tryptophan-containing dipeptides. The Stern-Volmer mechanism was used to detect such decay. Conformational energy calculations were undertaken to elucidate fluorescence properties of these peptides. Ionic strength effects were found, for the most part, to be unimportant in Stern-Volmer quenchng experiments.
