Triplet excited state characters and photosensitization mechanisms of alpha-terthienyl: a theoretical study.


PMID 18990584

Abstract

The triplet excited (T(1)) state characters of alpha-terthienyl (alpha-T) have been investigated using density functional theory calculations, based on which, its photosensitization mechanisms were explored. Primarily, the direct oxidation to the DNA bases by the T(1) state alpha-T through the electron transfer is not thermodynamically feasible. Secondly, 1O2 can be photogenerated both in benzene and water through the direct energy transfer from the T(1) state alpha-T to 3O2, while O2(.-) can only be formed in water through the electron transfer from the T(1) state alpha-T or alpha-T(-) to 3O2.
