Deactivation of excited singlet aromatic hydrocarbons by metallic ions in ethanol-water solution
MetadataShow full item record
The deactivation of a number of excited polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons by copper(II), cobalt(II), nickle(II) and chromium(III) in ethanol-water (1:1 by volume) has been investigated. In spite of the fact that most of the processes have very favourable ΔG° for electron transfer and ΔH° for energy transfer, the observed rate constants are considerably below the diffusion-controlled limit. The kQ values measured correlate well with those calculated assuming a dipole-dipole-induced energy transfer mechanism. The slow rates obtained are considered to be the consequence of the large distance of closest approach. © 1987.
