摘要: The excited-state relaxation dynamics of a synthetic porphyrin, ZnCAPEBPP, in solution, coated on a glass substrate as solid films, mixed with PMMA and coated on a glass substrate as solid films, and sensitized on nanocrystalline TiO(2) films were investigated by using femtosecond fluorescence up-conversion spectroscopy with excitation in the Soret band, S(2). We found that the S(2) -> S(1) electronic relaxation of ZnCAPEBPP in solution and on PMMA films occurs in 910 and 690 fs, respectively, but it becomes extremely rapid, < 100 fs, in solid films and TiO(2) films due to formation of porphyrin aggregates. When probed in the S(1) state of porphyrin, the fluorescence transients of the solid films show a biphasic kinetic feature with the rapid and slow components decaying in 1.9 - 2.4 and 19 - 26 ps, respectively. The transients in ZnCAPEBPP/TiO(2) films also feature two relaxation processes but they occur on different time scales, 100 - 300 fs and 0.8 - 4.1 ps, and contain a small offset. According to the variation of relaxation period as a function of molecular density on a TiO(2) surface, we assigned the femtosecond component of the TiO(2) films as due to indirect interfacial electron transfer through a phenylethynyl bridge attached to one of four meso positions of the porphyrin ring, and the picosecond component arising from intermolecular energy transfer among porphyrins. The observed variation of aggregate-induced relaxation periods between solid and TiO(2) films is due mainly to aggregation of two types: J-type aggregation is dominant in the former case whereas H-type aggregation prevails in the latter case.
