Absolute Quantum Yields for Exciplex Fluorescence

Volume 44, Number 1 (Jan. 1990) Page 101-105

Hale, S.J.; Melton, L.A.

The absolute quantum yields for exciplex fluorescence in four solutions which have potential as exciplex-based vapor/liquid visualization systems have been measured. The room-temperature absolute quantum yields for 10% dibutyl-aniline/0.4%, 1-cyanonaphthalene, 12.5% 1-methylnaphthalene/0.5% N,N,N′,N′-tetramethyl-p-phenylenediamine (TMPD), 10% tribexylamine/1.0% 1-cyanonaphthalene, and 10% naphthalene/1.0% TMPD in hexadecane or cyclohexane are 0.03 ± 0.005, 0.05 ± 0.002 (308 nm), 0.02 ± 0.001, and 0.16 ± 0.021, respectively. The temperature dependence of the absolute quantum yield for the 10% naphthalene/1% TMPD in the hexadecane system was measured over the range of 23 to 260°C and was found to decrease by 20-30% at 260°C.
