Fluorescence spectral features of 6-propionyl-2-dimethylaminonaphthalene (Prodan) in phospholipid vesicles of different phase states are investigated. Like the spectra of 6-lauroyl-2-dimethylaminonaphthalene (Laurdan), the steady-state excitation and emission spectra of Prodan are sensitive to the polarity of the environment, showing a relevant
