Giordano’s bimolecular excited state proton transfer accepted in JPCB

TOC1Giordano’s study of an biomimetic excited state proton transfer (ESPT) reaction “Following Bimolecular Excited State Proton Transfer between Hydroxycoumarin and Imidazole Derivatives” has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Physical Chemistry B. The paper details the immediate ESPT dynamics across a hydrogen bonded bridge between coumarin photoacid and imidazole base molecules in chloroform solution. Due to the short excited state lifetime of the photoacid, the immediate ‘contact’ ESPT reaction can be studied in isolation of diffusive driven ESPT dynamics. The paper is available online here and forms Tom’s contribution to the Journal of Physical Chemistry’s Young Scientists Virtual Special issue.
