Title: Ultrafast photo-induced charge transfer of 1-naphthol and 2-naphthol to halocarbon solvents

Abstract

We explore the fluorescence quenching of 1-naphthol and 2-naphthol in halocarbon solvents by usingtime-correlated single-photon-counting, femtosecond IR-spectroscopy and quantum chemistry compu-tations. We find that halocarbon solvents facilitate a de-excitation mechanism via solute-solvent electrontransfer. Decay rates are modulated by close contact interactions between thep-electronic structure ofnaphthols and halocarbon molecules in their first solvation shell. 1-naphthol exhibits faster decay ratesthan 2-naphthol due to closer interactions with the solvent.
