Femtosecond transient absorption spectroscopic study of a carbonyl-containing carotenoid analogue, 2-(all-trans-retinylidene)-indan-1,3-dione.

Abstract

The photophysical properties of a carbonyl-containing carotenoid analogue in an s-cis configuration, relative to the conjugated π system, 2-(all-trans-retinylidene)-indan-1,3-dione (C20Ind), were investigated by femtosecond time-resolved spectroscopy in various solvents. The lifetime of the optically forbidden S(1) state of C20Ind becomes long as solvent… (More)
