The spectroscopy and thermochemistry of phenylallyl radical chromophores

Author affiliations

Abstract

The resonant two-color two-photon ionization and laser induced fluorescence excitation spectra of the 1-phenylallyl (cinnamyl) and inden-2-ylmethyl radicals are reported. The 1-phenylallyl radical is found to fluoresce with low yield, permitting only a coarse dispersed fluorescence spectrum, while the inden-2-ylmethyl radical yields sufficient fluorescence to obtain ground-state vibrational frequencies and two-dimensional fluorescence spectra. Computed ionization energies and thermochemical properties including radical stabilization energies are reported for a range of resonance-stabilized radicals, including the phenylpropargyl, vinylpropargyl and phenylallyl radicals.
