Delayed Excimer Fluorescence of Fluoranthene Due to Triplet-Triplet Annihilation: Systematic Study of the Fluorescence from a Weakly Bound Excimer


Solutions of fluoranthene exhibit a delayed fluorescence (DF) due to triplet-triplet annihilation, M* + M* → M* + M (P-type DF). In the fluid solvent 3-methylpentane, at low temperatures, the DF consists of two components: delayed monomer fluorescence (DMF) and a slightly red-shifted component, which is assigned to delayed excimer fluorescence (DEF). The… (More)
