Transfer of Electronic Excitation Energy in Polystyrene Films Doped with an Intramolecular Proton Transfer Compound
Tai Jong Kang*, Hackjin Kim, Chinkap Chung
The transfer of excitation energy from solvent to solute in polystyrene films doped with 2-(2'-hydroxyphenyl)benzothiazole (HBT) which undergoes intramolecular proton transfer in excited electronic state has been studied by employing steady state and time-resolved fluorescence measurements. The degree of Forster overlap between donor and acceptor molecule in this system is estimated to be moderate. Energy transfer efficiency increases with solute concentration at low concentration range and levels off at high concentration. It is observed that the excimer form of polystyrene is largely involved in energy transfer process. Photostability of HBT in polystyrene to UV light is also investigated to get insight into the long wavelength absorption band of HBT which was observed upon electron radiation.
