Solvatochromic and preferential solvation studies on schiff base 1,4-bis(((2-methylthio)phenylimino)methyl) benzene in binary liquid mixtures.


PMID 20454839

Abstract

The solvatochromic behavior of the 1,4-bis(((2-methylthio) phenylimino)methyl) benzene [BMTPMB] in single solvents and binary mixtures were investigated. Fluorescence spectra show the dual emission due to twisted intramolecular charge transfer (TICT) state. The preferential solvation parameters: local mole fraction, X (2) (L) , solvation index δ(s2), exchange constant K(12) were calculated for the binary mixtures, ACN+MEOH, DMSO+CCl(4) and CCl(4)+1,2 DCE. The dipole moment ratios between ground and excited states were deduced using the solvatochromic shifts of absorption and fluorescence spectra as a function of dielectric constant (ε), refractive index (n) and it was found to be 1.25.
