Abstract:

The photolysis of tetramethyldioxetane at 264 nm was probed using picosecond spectroscopic techniques. Singlet exited acetone was one of the observed products. The rise time for acetone fluorescence was determined to be less than 10 psec. A mechanism consistent with these results is proposed. Author
