Abstract

The excited-state heterolysis of acridinol-based derivatives leads to the release of the OH- ion and the formation of the corresponding acridinium cations. To evaluate the parameters that control the reaction barriers, the kinetics of excited-state OH- release from a series of acridinol photobases were studied using transient absorption spectroscopy. The rate constants were obtained in three solvents (methanol, butanol and isobutanol), and the data were modeled using Marcus theory. The intrinsic reorganization energies obtained from these fits were found to correlate well with the solvent reorganization energies calculated using dielectric continuum model, suggesting that the excited-state hydroxide ion release occurs along the solvent reaction coordinate. Furthermore, the ability of acridinol photobases to photo-initiate chemical reactions was demonstrated using a Michael addition between dimethylmalonate and nitrostyrene.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 10 January 2017.
All research outputs
#10,909,320
of 12,309,854 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Physical Chemistry A
#3,073
of 5,389 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#275,226
of 335,377 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Physical Chemistry A
#81
of 223 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,309,854 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 5,389 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.8. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 335,377 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 223 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
