Abstract [en]

Electronic energy migration within a bifluorophoric molecule has been studied by time-resolved two-photon excited (TPE) fluorescence depolarisation experiments. Data were analysed by using a recently developed quantitative approach [O. Opanasyuk and L. B.-A. Johansson, On the Analyses of Fluorescence Depolarisation Data in the Presence of Electronic Energy Migration. Part I: Theory and General Description, Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys., submitted]. The energy migration occurs between the 9-anthrylmethyl groups of the bifluorophoric molecule, bis-(9-anthrylmethylphosphonate) bisteroid. These groups undergo local reorientations, while overall tumbling of the bisteroid is strongly hampered in the used viscous solvent, 1,2-propanediol. To solely obtain information about local reorientations of the 9-anthrylmethyl group, also the mono-(9-anthrylmethylphosphonate) bisteroid was studied, which enabled modelling of the ordering potential shape. The analysis of data is partly performed in the Fourier domain and the best-fit parameters are determined by using an approach based on a Genetic Algorithm. The energy migration process was described by an extended Forster theory (EFT). A reasonable value of the distance between the 9-anthrylmethyl groups, as well as for the mutual orientation of the ordering potentials, is found. Furthermore, values of the two-photon tensor components were obtained.
