Wavepacket Motion Observed in an Ultrafast Electron Transfer System
For a number of systems it has been shown that ultrafast electron transfer (ET) reactions can occur even faster than relevant medium reorganization and relaxation processes [1–3]. In this context, the role of specific reaction pathways and intramolecular vibrational modes becomes increasingly important. Here we want to present new experimental results for the well-known ET system oxazine 1 (OX) in N,N-dimethylaniline (DMA) recorded with highest time resolution. The data are compared to the reference system OX in 1-chloronaphtalene (1CN) having similar solvent properties (dipolemoment, dielectric constant, viscosity), however showing no ET.
