Abstract: A study is made on the previously ignored problem of the dependence of a static fluorescence quenching Stern-Volmer constant Ksv on the initial concentration of [F]0 fluorophore F. This correlation is shown to exist. It is concluded that the Stern-Volmer quenching constant may be used as association constant K only with .
