The two isoelectronic bipyridyl derivatives [2,2'-bipyridyl]-3,3'-diamine (BP(NH(2))(2)) and [2,2'-bipyridyl]-3,3'-diol (BP(OH)(2)) are experimentally known to undergo very different excited-state double proton transfer processes that result in fluorescence quantum yields that differ by four orders of magnitude. Such differences have been theoretically(More)
A quantum electronic study of the effect of substituents on (2,2'-bipyridyl)-3,3'-diol and (2,2'-bipyridyl)-3,3'-diamine is presented. A large difference in the photochemical behavior between the original and the substituted selected systems is expected. For the sake of simplicity, the study is restricted to the symmetrically bi-substituted compounds:(More)
The ultrafast proton-transfer dynamics of 1-hydroxy-2-acetonaphthone has been theoretically analyzed in the ground and first singlet excited electronic states by density functional theory calculations and quantum dynamics. The potential energies obtained in the ground electronic state reveal that the proton-transfer process does not lead to a stable keto(More)
Ultrafast UV/Vis pump/probe experiments on ortho-, meta- and para-hydroxy-substituted azobenzenes (HO-ABs), as well as for sulfasalazine, an AB-based drug, were performed in aqueous solution. For meta-HO-AB, AB-like isomerisation behaviour can be observed, whereas, for ortho-HO-AB, fast proton transfer occurs, resulting in an excited keto species. For(More)
The two isoelectronic bipyridyl derivatives [2,2'-bipyridyl]-3,3'-diamine and [2,2'-bipyridyl]-3,3'-diol are experimentally known to undergo very different excited-state double-proton-transfer processes, which result in fluorescence quantum yields that differ by four orders of magnitude. In a previous study, these differences were explained from a(More)
The two isoelectronic bipyridyl derivatives, [2,2'-bipyridyl]-3,3'-diamine and [2,2'-bipyridyl]-3,3'-diol, are experimentally known to undergo very different excited-state double-proton-transfer processes, which result in fluorescence quantum yields that differ by four orders of magnitude.

The ultrafast proton transfer dynamics of salicylideneaniline has been theoretically analyzed in the ground and first singlet excited electronic states using density functional theory (DFT) and time-dependent DFT calculations, which predict a (pi,pi( *)) barrierless excited state intramolecular proton transfer (ESIPT). In addition to this, the(More)
The proton-transfer dynamics in the aromatic Schiff base salicylidene methylamine has been theoretically analyzed in the ground and first singlet (pi,pi) excited electronic states by density functional theory calculations and quantum wave-packet dynamics. The potential energies obtained through electronic calculations that use the time-dependent density(More)
A thorough analysis of the single and double proton transfer and the internal rotations of neutral indigo and its dianionic leucoindigo form has been performed for the ground and first singlet excited electronic states using, respectively, DFT and TDDFT state-of-the-art methods. Our theoretical analysis discloses that the diketo isomer is the most stable(More)
