Photoinduced charge transfer involving a MoMo quadruply bonded complex to a perylene diimide

Author affiliations

Abstract

Evidence, based on femtosecond transient absorption and time resolved infrared spectroscopy, is presented for photoinduced charge transfer from the Mo2δ orbital of the quadruply bonded molecule trans-Mo2(TiPB)2(BTh)2, where TiPB = 2,4,6-triisopropyl benzoate and BTh = 2,2′-bithienylcarboxylate, to di-n-octyl perylene diimide and di-n-hexylheptyl perylene diimide in thin films and solutions of the mixtures. The films show a long-lived charge separated state while slow back electron transfer, τBET ∼ 500 ps, occurs in solution.
