Abstract

Intramolecular proton transfer after electronic excitation of aromatic molecules proceeds frequently on ultrafast time scales. Femtosecond studies of the transient electronic spectra occurring with and after the formation of a new molecular geometry provide insight into the reaction dynamics, whereas resonance Raman experiments give information on the vibrational modes involved in the initial phase of excited state reactions and — thus — on the microscopic mechanisms of the structural changes. In this paper, we report new results on proton transfer reactions and nonequilibrium vibrational excitations of 2-(2’-hydroxy-5’- methylphenyl)benzotriazole (trade name: TINUVIN P, TIN), an ultraviolet stabilizer of polymers.
