Femtosecond Infrared Spectroscopy of Photoinduced Intermolecular H+ Transport

Ultrafast intermolecular proton (H+) transport pathways of the bifunctional photoacid 7-hydroxyquinoline (7HQ) in polar protic methanol solvent are examined with femtosecond UV-pump/IR-probe spectroscopy. Following electronic excitation, 7HQ can be converted simultaneously into a strong acid and a strong base. [more]
