Photophysics and photodeprotection reactions of p-methoxyphenacyl phototriggers: an ultrafast and nanosecond time-resolved spectroscopic and density functional theory study.

Time-resolved spectroscopic experiments were performed to investigate the kinetics and mechanisms of the photodeprotection reactions for p-methoxyphenacyl (pMP) compounds, p-methoxyphenacyl diethyl phosphate (MPEP) and diphenyl phosphate (MPPP). The experimental results reveal that compared to the previous reports for the counterpart p-hydroxyphenacyl (pHP… CONTINUE READING
