Donor-acceptor compounds exhibiting charge transfer emission are of interest in a variety of different contexts, for example, for nonlinear optical processes and for sensor applications. Recently investigated triarylamine-triarylborane compounds represent an important class of donor-acceptor systems, and we explored to what extent their charge-transfer(More)
Two molecular triads with an oligotriarylamine multielectron donor were synthesized and investigated with a view to obtaining charge-separated states in which the oligotriarylamine is oxidized 2-fold. Such photoinduced accumulation of multiple redox equivalents is of interest for artificial photosynthesis. The first triad was comprised of the(More)
A homologous series of three molecules containing thiophene, bithiophene, and terthiophene bridges between two redox-active tertiary amino groups was synthesized and explored. Charge delocalization in the one-electron-oxidized forms of these molecules was investigated by a combination of cyclic voltammetry, near-infrared optical absorption spectroscopy, and(More)
An oligotriarylamine (OTA) unit, a Ru(bpy)3(2+) photosensitizer moiety (Ru), and an anthraquinone (AQ) entity were combined to a molecular dyad (Ru-OTA) and a molecular triad (AQ-Ru-OTA). Pulsed laser excitation at 532 nm led to the formation of charge-separated states of the type Ru(-)-OTA(+) and AQ(-)-Ru-OTA(+) with lifetimes of ≤10 ns and 2.4 μs,(More)
A molecular pentad comprised of a central multielectron donor and two flanking photosensitizer-acceptor moieties was prepared in order to explore the possibility of accumulating two positive charges at the central donor, using visible light as an energy input. Photoinduced charge accumulation in purely molecular systems without sacrificial reagents is(More)
