The quenching of singlet molecular oxygen (1O2) by the flavylium cation form of six widespread anthocyanin derivatives: cyanidin 3-glucoside (CG), cyanidin 3-rutinoside (CR), cyanidin 3-galactoside (CGL), malvidin (M), malvidin 3-glucoside (MG) and malvidin 3,5-diglucoside (MDG) was studied in 1% HCl methanol solution by time-resolved phosphorescence detection (TRPD) of 1O2 and photostationary actinometry using perinaphthenone and methylene blue as sensitizers, respectively. The average value… Expand

Triplet Excited States and Singlet Oxygen Production by Analogs of Red Wine Pyranoanthocyanins
The strong visible light absorption, the relatively small singlet‐triplet energy differences, the excited state redox potentials and the reasonably long lifetimes of pyranoflavylium triplet states in the absence of molecular oxygen suggest that they might be useful as triplet sensitizers and/or as cationic redox initiators in polar aprotic solvents like acetonitrile.
