Abstract

The dynamics of the geminate radical-ion pairs formed by electron transfer to the excited states of cyanoanthracenes from 2-phenylcyclopropylamines are dominated by exothermic bond cleavage of the amine radical cations. Quantitative studies of product formation as a function of the energetics of the photochemical and corresponding thermal reactions provide support for a novel mechanism in which return electron transfer in the geminate pair occurs in concert with bond formation from the ring-opened radical cations. This bond-coupled electron transfer process is referred to as an associative return electron transfer reaction. The important features of the associative electron transfer process that explain the experimental observations are described in terms of potential energy surfaces and competition between adiabatic and non-adiabatic deactivation paths.
