Absorption and steady-state fluorescence spectra of nine N-p-(m- and o-) chlorobenzyl substituted (E)-2'-(3' and 4')-hydroxy-4-stilbazolium chlorides belonging to the hemicyanine class of compounds were studied in extra dry alcohols of different polarity. Derivatives with 2'-hydroxy or 4'-hydroxy substituent in the benzene moiety of stilbazol molecule displayed negative solvatochromizm. On the other hand, the excited state decay of compounds with a 3'-hydroxy group in the benzene moiety was dominated by non-radiative processes in protic solvents. Solutions of each of the compounds are yellow in extra dry solvents, red in solvents with small amount of water and yellow again if more water is added. The absorbance and steady-state fluorescence methods were used to explain the protonation/deprotonation processes for N-p-chlorobenzyl-(E)-4'-hydroxy-4-stilbazolium chloride and its zwitterionic or quinoid form in 2-propanol responsible for these phenomena.

Absorption, steady-state and timed-resolved fluorescence spectra of nine N-p-bromobenzyl substituted (E)-4'-hydroxy-4-stilbazolium bromides and N-p-bromo- (or nitro-) benzyl substituted (E)-4'-hydroxy-3'methoxy-4-stilbazolium bromides, belonging to the hemicyanine class of compounds, were studied in dry and water-containing polar solvents and in water. All of the studied compounds displayed negative solvatochromism. In solvents with small amounts of water the solutions of each of the compounds change color to red, blue-green or blue, while in extra dry solvents they are all yellow. Read More

The protonation/deprotonation equilibrium was investigated for N-p-chlorobenzyl-substituted (E)-4'-hydroxy stilbazolium halide, namely (E)-1-(4-chlorobenzyl)-4-(4-hydroxystyryl)pyridinium chloride (EPC). Absorption, emission and synchronous scanning spectra were used to explain the observed phenomena. The excited state lifetimes of the protonated and deprotonated forms of EPC were measured and discussed. Read More

Faculty of Chemistry, A. Mickiewicz University, Grunwaldzka 6, 60-780 Poznan, Poland.

The spectral and photophysical behavior of four fluorescent 9-oxo-imidazo[1,2-a]purine derivatives containing pyridyl, pyridylphenyl, phenyl, and biphenylyl substituents at the C(6) position of the tricyclic skeleton is described. The studies were performed in several aprotic and protic organic solvents using absorption spectroscopy as well as steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy. The results are also presented of TDDFT calculations on singlet-singlet excitation energies and oscillator strengths for two models of 9-oxo-imidazo[1,2-a]purine, with phenyl or pyridyl substituents, both in the gas phase and in methanol solution.

Effects of intra- and intermolecular hydrogen-bonds on the photophysical properties of 2'-aminoacetophenone derivatives (X-C6H4-COCH3) having a substituted amino group (X) with different hydrogen-bonding ability to the carbonyl oxygen (X: NH2(AAP), NHCH3(MAAP), N(CH3)2(DMAAP), NHCOCH3(AAAP), NHCOCF3(TFAAP)) are investigated by means of steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy and time-resolved thermal lensing. Based on the photophysical parameters obtained in aprotic solvents with different polarity and protic solvents with different hydrogen-bonding ability, the characteristic photophysical behavior of the 2'-aminoacetophenone derivatives is discussed in terms of hydrogen-bonding and n,pi*-pi,pi* vibronic coupling. The dominant deactivation process of AAP and MAAP in nonpolar aprotic solvents is the extremely fast internal conversion (k(ic)= 1. Read More
