The recombination dynamics of ion pairs generated upon electron transfer quenching of perylene in the first singlet excited state by tetracyanoethylene in acetonitrile is quantitatively described by the extended unified theory of photoionization/recombination. The extension incorporates the hot recombination of the ion pair passing through the(More)
The reversible exciplex formation followed by its decomposition into an ion pair is considered, taking into account the subsequent geminate and bulk ion recombination to the triplet and singlet products (in excited and ground states). The integral kinetic equations are derived for all state populations, assuming that the spin conversion is performed by the(More)
The results of the precise kinetic fitting of the highly exergonic electron transfer from excited perylene to tetracyanoethylene in acetonitrile were used to estimate the Stern-Volmer constant of perylene quenching by double channel electron transfer (to the ground and excited states of the radical ion pair). It appears that the Stern-Volmer constant is(More)
The quenching of fluorescence by reversible bimolecular ionization, followed by reversible exciplex formation from an ion pair (Scheme II) subjected to spin-conversion and subsequent radical-ion recombination/separation, has been studied by means of integral encounter theory (IET) and fitted to the available experimental data. Using the incoherent (rate)(More)
The fluorescence of the exciplex, (1)[D(+δ)A(-δ)], formed at contact of photoexcited acceptor (1)A(*) with an electron donor (1)D, is known to be very sensitive to an external magnetic field, reducing the spin conversion efficiency in the resulting geminate radical ion pair, (1, 3)[D(+)…A(-)]. The relative increase of the exciplex fluorescence in the(More)
The magnetic field effect on the fluorescence of the photoexcited electron acceptor, (1)A∗, and the exciplex, (1)[D(+δ)A(-δ)] formed at contact of (1)A∗ with an electron donor (1)D, is theoretically explored in the framework of Integral Encounter Theory. It is assumed that the excited fluorophore is equilibrated with the exciplex that reversibly dissociates(More)
The double-channel recombination and separation of the photochemically created singlet radical pair is investigated, taking into account the spin conversion in a zero magnetic field and the arbitrary initial distance between the radicals. The quantum yields of the singlet and triplet products and the free radicals production are found analytically, assuming(More)
The association of an excess electron with scavengers in nonpolar solvents is considered assuming that the free electron performs the free diffusion during the lifetime between sequential places of temporary localization. The reaction of a free electron during this motion is at first taken into account along with a tunneling of the localized electron. When(More)
Creation of exciplexes from the charged products of photoionization is considered by means of Integral Encounter Theory. The general kinetic equations of such a reaction following the Weller scheme II are developed. The special attention is given to the particular case of irreversible remote ionization of primary excited electron donor. Kinetics of exciplex(More)
The excitation quenching by reversible exciplex formation, combined with irreversible but distant electron transfer, is considered by means of the integral encounter theory (IET). Assuming that the quenchers are in great excess, the set of IET equations for the excitations, free ions, and exciplexes is derived. Solving these equations gives the Laplace(More)
