Photochemistry of 1,2-dihydronaphthalene oxide: concurrent triplet and singlet processes via singlet excitation.


The photochemistry of 1,2-dihydronaphthalene oxide (254 nm) was reexamined and indan was found to be a primary photoproduct, as well as the traditionally assumed secondary photoproduct. Quenching studies demonstrated that indan, as a primary photoproduct, is derived from a triplet pathway, competing with a singlet route, back to the ground state surface… (More)
