    Quantum chemical density functional theory (DFT) calculations and spectral data were employed to investigate the possibility of the excited-state double proton transfer (ESDPT) in lumichrome crystals. The calculations in a lumichrome dimer predict a transfer of a proton in the first excited state, leading to a cation-anion pair. The presently reported X-ray structure of 1,3-dimethyllumichrome and its complex solid-state luminescence indicate that also in this molecule intermolecular hydrogen bonds might be involved in the photophysics. The long-wavelength emission in lumichrome crystals peaked at 530 nm is attributed to excited-state proton transfer, whereas a wider emission band in methylated lumichrome derivatives peaked at 560 nm is attributed to ions formed upon photoexcitation of the crystals.

    The crystal structure of 2-butylamino-6-methyl-4-nitropyridine N-oxide (2B6M) was resolved on the basis of X-ray diffraction. Solid 2B6M occurs in the form of a doubly hydrogen-bonded dimer with squarelike hydrogen-bonding network composed of two intra- (2.556(2) A) and two intermolecular (2. Read More

    Experimental time-resolved spectral and photon counting kinetic results confirm formation of an isoalloxazinic excited state via excited-state double proton transfer (ESDPT) catalyzed by a carboxylic acid molecule that forms a hydrogen-bond complex with the parent alloxazine molecule. This isoalloxazinic tautomer manifests itself as a distinct long-lived emissive species formed only in such alloxazine derivatives that were not substituted at the N1 nitrogen atom, being a product of the excited-state reaction occurring from the alloxazinic excited state. Theoretical calculations support the idea that the ESDPT occurs by the concerted mechanism. Read More
    Hydrogen-bonded complexes of lumichrome.

    Hydrogen bonds were shown to play an important role in the lumichrome photophysics and photochemistry both in solutions and in the solid state. In solutions, lumichrome can form hydrogen-bonded complexes with a variety of molecules, such as acetic acid or methanol, as supported by spectral and equilibrium studies. Photoexcitation of some hydrogen-bonded complexes, having appropriate configuration, as in the case of acetic acid, may lead to excited-state proton transfer, resulting in formation of the isoalloxazinic structure, detectable by its characteristic emission, distinct from that of the intrinsically alloxazinic lumichrome.

    Excited-state proton transfer and phototautomerism in nucleobase and nucleoside analogs: a mini-review.

    Intermolecular excited-state proton transfer (ESPT) has been observed in several fluorescent nucleobase and/or nucleoside analogs. In the present work, some new examples of ESPT in this class of compounds are presented together with a brief recapitulation of the previously published data. The nucleobases, nucleosides, and their analogs contain many basic and acidic centers and therefore their ESPT behavior may be complex. Read More
