Competitive electron transfer and enhanced intersystem crossing in photoexcited covalent TEMPO-perylene-3,4:9,10-bis(dicarboximide) dyads: unusual spin polarization resulting from the radical-triplet interaction.


A stable 2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-1-piperidinyloxyl (TEMPO) radical was covalently attached at its 4-position to the imide nitrogen atom of a perylene-3,4:9,10-bis(dicarboximide) (PDI) to produce TEMPO-PDI, 1, having a well-defined distance and orientation between TEMPO and PDI. Transient optical absorption experiments in toluene following selective… (More)
