On-Contact Quenching of 1-Naphtholate by Geminate Protons Academic Article uri icon


  • We have carried out temperature dependence studies of the geminate quenching reaction of 1-naphthol utilizing steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy. The outcome was analyzed using both analytic and numeric procedures. A novel method for estimating the on-contact quenching reaction rate from steady-state quantum-yield measurements is described.
