Solvent effects on the intramolecular charge transfer character of N,N‐diaryl dihydrophenazine

Abstract: The nature of intramolecular charge transfer (CT) of N,N‐diaryl dihydrophenazine photocatalysts (PCs) in different solvents is explored in context of their performance in organocatalyzed atom transfer radical polymerization (O‐ATRP). PCs having a computationally predicted lowest energy excited state exhibiting CT character can operate a highly controlled O‐ATRP in a wide range of solvent polarities,…
