Resum

An approach was developed to determine triplet quantum yields, ΦT, which overcomes most of the difficulties usually encountered in flash photolysis studies of triplet states. The combined application of near-IR emission and optoacoustics yields ΦT values which are independent of the absorption properties of the triplets. Thus, the triplet energies derived from near-IR phosphorescence spectra together with the values of the heat stored by the triplets determined from optoacoustic experiments afforded ΦT = 0.3 ± 0.1 for porphycene (PO) and 0.4 ± 0.1 for its tetra-n-propyl derivative (TPrPO). Several calorimetric references for optoacoustic measurements in the red region were tested. The ΦT values, combined with flash photolysis data, yielded accurate triplet- minus ground-state absorption coefficients. The quantum yields for singlet molecular oxygen production determined by time-resolved phosphorescence were ΦΔ = 0.34 ± 0.05 for PO and 0.36 ± 0.03 for TPrPO which implies an efficiency near unity for O2(1Δ8) production upon collision of the triplet states of the porphycenes with ground-state O2.
