New probe for triplet-state dissolved organic matter reactivity

July 23, 2018



Kyle Moor recently published a paper in Environmental Science & Technology on using singlet oxygen phosphorescence as a probe for measuring triplet-excited state dissolved organic matter (3DOM*) reactivity.  The concept for this project originated more than a decade ago when Kris was a faculty member at University of Minnesota!  This indirect observation method allows access to measuring 3DOM* quenching rate constants and photophysical properties. We determined rate constants that govern 3DOM* natural lifetimes and quenching by oxygen and 2,4,6-trimethylphenol and found that they were generally lower than model sensitizers.
