Fluorescence quenching of carbazole by 2-chloro-3,5-dinitrobenzotrifluoride-ethylamines intermolecular charge-transfer complex.


PMID 23266014

Abstract

The interaction between carbazole and 2-chloro-3,5-dinitrobenzotrifluoride-ethylamines, (mono-, di-, and triethylamine) charge-transfer complex in DMSO was studied using fluorescence spectroscopy. The positive deviation from linearity has been observed in the Stern-Volmer plots. The experimental results showed that the fluorescence of carbazole was quenched by 2-chloro-3,5-dinitrobenzotrifluoride-ethylamines charge-transfer complex through a combined quenching procedure. The Stern-Volmer quenching constants, K(SV), have been determined and found to be greater quenching efficiency of ethylamine. Carbazole/2-chloro-3,5-dinitrobenzotrifluoride loaded PMMA film was exposed to ethylamine vapor, where the resulting absorption and emission changing properties were clearly monitored.
