2-Acetonaphthone was used in direct time-resolved studies on singlet molecular oxygen phosphorescence in heterogeneous silica gel/cyclohexane systems1.

General description

2-Acetonaphthone undergoes efficient photoreduction in the presence of tri-n-butylstannane as hydrogen donor2. It is solubilized in air-saturated sodium dodecyl sulphate micelles in D2O or H2O by pulsed nitrogen laser photolysis for triplet sensitized production of singlet oxygen3.
