Abstract
An electron donor-quinolinium ion dyad, 2-phenyl-4-(1-naphthyl)quinolinium ion (QuPh +-NA), has been synthesized based on a rational design. The X-ray crystal structure of QuPh +-NA indicates that the dihedral angle between the NA and QuPh + moieties of QuPh +-NA is nearly perpendicular. The one-electron reduction potential (E red) was observed as a well-defined reversible wave at -0.90 V versus SCE. The one-electron reduced species (QuPh-NA) was detected by ESR. The electron self-exchange rate constant (k ex) between QuPh +-NA and QuPh-NA has been determined from the ESR linewidth alternation. The reorganization energy (λ) of the electron self-exchange was determined to be 0.42 eV from the k ex value. Femtosecond laser irradiation of QuPh +-NA at 355 nm results in formation of the ET state (QuPh-NA +) within 0.5 ps via photoinduced ET from NA to the singlet-excited state of QuPh +. The transient absorption bands at 420 nm and 700 nm are assigned to the QuPh and NA + moieties, respectively. The nanosecond laser excitation of QuPh +-NA affords the broad absorption band at 1000 nm and is due to the π-dimer radical cation formed between QuPh-NA + and QuPh +-NA. The intramolecular back electron-transfer process was too slow to compete with the intermolecular back electron-transfer reaction judging from the decay time profile of QuPh-NA +, which obeyed second-order kinetics. © 2012 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
