Fluorescence from the second excited singlet state of [18] annulenes

Journal Article

The emission spectra of the second excited singlet state of [18] annulene and of monofluoro [18] annulene (in a 3-methylpentane glass at 4 K) are reported. The large energy gap between the first and second excited singlet states inhibits fast internal conversion and favours the appearance of S2 → S0 emission. In addition, fluorescence from the S1 state can be observed in monofluoro [13] annulene by exciting into the S2 or directly into the S1 absorption. © 1976.
