Abstract
  • We use femtosecond stimulated Raman spectroscopy (FSRS) to illuminate the choreography of intermolecular excited-state proton transfer (ESPT) of photoacid pyranine (8-hydroxypyrene-1,3,6-trisulfonic acid, HPTS) in water. The multidimensional reaction coordinate responsible for photoacidity is revealed to involve sequential activation of characteristic skeletal motions during the ca. 1 ps preparation stage preceding ESPT. The initial ring-coplanarity breaking follows in-plane ring breathing (191 cm⁻¹), and is facilitated by HPTS ring wagging (108 cm⁻¹) and ring-H out-of-plane motions (321, 362, 952 cm⁻¹), which largely decay within ~1 ps. ESPT then occurs with intrinsic inhomogeneity via various number of intervening water molecules over relatively larger distances than those in acetate-water system. The intricate relationship between the time-resolved excited-state vibrational modes of HPTS reveals the essential role of coherent low-frequency skeletal motions gating ESPT, and the multi-staged proton-transfer process having the kinetic isotope effect (KIE) value of 3–4 in aqueous solution on the 5–200 ps timescale.
