Relaxation pathways of excited N-(triphenylmethyl)salicylidenimine in solutions.


Excited state relaxation of N-(triphenylmethyl)-salicylidenimine (MS1) in protic and aprotic solvents has been investigated by means of absorption pump-probe spectroscopy with femtosecond time resolution and fluorescence spectroscopy with picosecond time resolution. Short-lived excited states and long-lived photoproducts have been identified from the… (More)
