Hydrogen-bond strengthening upon photoinduced electron transfer in ruthenium-anthraquinone dyads interacting with hexafluoroisopropanol or water.

Abstract

Quinones play a key role as primary electron acceptors in natural photosynthesis, and their reduction is known to be facilitated by hydrogen-bond donors or protonation. In this study, the influence of hydrogen-bond donating solvents on the thermodynamics and kinetics of intramolecular electron transfer between Ru(bpy)(3)(2+) (bpy = 2,2'-bipyridine) and 9,10… (More)
