A comprehensive theoretical investigation of intramolecular proton transfer in the excited states for some newly-designed diphenylethylene derivatives bearing 2-(2-hydroxy-phenyl)-benzotriazole part.
ABSTRACT This article presents a comprehensive theoretical investigation of excited state intramolecular proton transfer (ESIPT) for some newly-designed diphenylethylene derivatives containing 2-(2-hydroxy-phenyl)-benzotriazole moiety with various substituted groups. The calculation shows the structural parameters and Mulliken charges of phototautomers enol (E) and keto (K) of these compounds exhibit no or tiny changes from S(0) to S(1). The calculated results suggest that HOMO and LUMO + 1 of the compounds displays excellent overlapping nature, and thus the absorption and emission could be from the electron transition of HOMO→LUMO + 1. The electron density distribution in the frontier orbital of E and K are influenced remarkably by various substituted groups in S(0) and S(1) states. Electron density distribution deficiency in 2-(2-hydroxy-phenyl)-benzotriazole part is observed in L + 1 for these derivatives. The calculation also suggests the potential energy curves of ESIPT are shown to be a strong relationship with electron donor-acceptor groups. The absorption spectra, normal emission spectra and ESIPT spectra of the derivatives were also calculated.

ABSTRACT: Fluorescent quinazolinones were synthesized form ethyl 2-methyl-4-oxo-3,4-dihydroquinazoline -5-carboxylate intermediate. The photophysical properties of the compounds were evaluated in DMF solvent. The experimental absorption and emission of the compounds were compared with the vertical excitation and emission obtained Density Functional Theory (DFT) and Time Dependent Density Functional Theory (TD-DFT) computation. Application of the fluorescent compounds as a fluorescent brightening agent was tested on polyester fiber. Changes in the electronic transition, energy levels, and orbital diagrams of quinazolin-4(3H)-one analogues were investigated using the DFT computations and were correlated with the experimental spectral data. The experimental absorption and emission wavelengths are in good agreement with those predicted using the DFT and TD-DFT.Journal of Fluorescence 05/2014; · 1.79 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: Novel carbazole based styryl derivatives (6a-6c) having styryl group at third position and a methoxy substitution were synthesized by condensing 4-methoxy-9-methyl-9H-carbazole-3-carbaldehyde 3 and different active methylene derivatives (5a-5c). Evaluated photophysical properties of these synthesized novel chromophores, studied the effect of solvent polarity on absorption, emission and quantum yield of these styryl derivatives. DFT and TD-DFT computations are carried out to study structural, molecular, electronic and photophysical parameters of dyes. The ratio of ground state to excited state dipole moment was calculated using Bakhshiev and Kawski-Chamma-Viallet correlations.Journal of Fluorescence 05/2014; · 1.79 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: The excited-state intramolecular proton transfer chromophores 2-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-6-methylimidazo[4,5-f]isoindole-5,7(1H,6H)-dione and 2-(4-(diethylamino)-2-hydroxyphenyl)-6-methylimidazo[4,5-f]isoindole-5,7(1H,6H)-dione are synthesized from 4,5-diamino-N-methylphthalimide. The photophysical behavior of the synthesized chromophores was studied using UV-visible and fluorescence spectroscopy in the polar and non-polar solvents. The synthesized o-hydroxyphenyl benzimidazole derivatives are fluorescent and very sensitive to the solvent polarity. These dyes are thermally stable up to 317°C. Density Functional Theory computations have been used to understand the structural, molecular, electronic and photophysical properties of the chromophores. The experimental absorption and emission wavelengths are in good agreement with the computed vertical excitation and theoretical emission obtained by Density Functional Theory and Time Dependant Density Functional Theory.Spectrochimica Acta Part A Molecular and Biomolecular Spectroscopy 07/2014; 135C:457-465. · 2.13 Impact Factor
