Abstract
The influence of heavy atom substituents (Br, I) in the electron donor aniline on the electron transfer reaction with thiopyronine triplet is investigated by flash spectroscopy in solvents of different viscosity and polarity. Triplet quenching constants and radical yields are determined. The results are analysed in terms of decay constants of an intermediate triplet exciplex where the heavy atom substituents significantly enhance the intersystem crossing process leading to singlet ground state formation and thus diminishing the radical yield due to exciplex dissociation. The sensitivity of the radical yield to solvent effects is strongly enhanced by heavy atom s...
