Kinetic Prediction of Reverse Intersystem Crossing in Organic Donor–Acceptor Molecules

Joint press release (in Japanese)
by JST, RIKEN, and Hokkaido University

Reverse intersystem crossing (RISC), the uphill spin-flip process from a triplet to a singlet excited state, plays a key role in a wide range of photochemical applications. Understanding and predicting the kinetics of such processes in vastly different molecular structures would facilitate the rational material design. Here, we demonstrate ……
