Effects of Naphthyl Connectivity on the Photophysics of Organic Charge-Transfer PCs

Abstract: Modular chromophoric systems with minimal electronic coupling between donor and acceptor moieties are well suited for establishing predictive relationships between molecular structure and excited-state properties. Here, we investigate the impact of naphthyl-based connectivity on the photophysics of phenoxazine-derived orthogonal donor–acceptor complexes. While compounds in this class are themselves interesting as potent organic photocatalysts useful…
