Title
Anomalous Hammett’s plot in the quenching of Ru(bpy)32+ phosphorescence by p-substituted phenols
Abstract

•Tris (2,2′-bipyridine) Ru (II) phosphorescence is readily quenched by 4-substituted-phenols at basic pH.•A Hammett’s plot shows a parabolic behaviour with a minimum rate for phenol, one branch with negative σ and other with positive σ values.•The parabolic behaviour can be explained in terms of two different quenching mechanisms.

Tris(2,2′-bipyridine) Ru(II) (Ru(bpy)32+) phosphorescence is readily quenched by p-substituted phenols in a bimolecular process whose rate, in aqueous solution, is determined by the pH of the solution and the electron-affinity of the substituent. A Hammett’s type plot based on data obtained at pH 10.4 in terms of σ parameters conforms to a parabola with a minimum rate for phenol and two branches, one comprising compounds with negative σ values (electron donors) and other with positive σ values (electron acceptors groups). This anomalous behaviour takes place at a constant pH and it can be explained in terms of two quenching mechanisms: a simple electron transfer from the phenolate to the Ru(II) complex when pKa << pH, and a PCET (proton coupled electron transfer) mechanism for compounds where the protonated phenol predominates (pKa > pH).
