Abstract

The resonance Raman spectrum of the photogenerated radical cation of bithiophene is reported. The bithiophene radical cation was produced via a photoinduced electron transfer reaction between excited bithiophene and the electron acceptor fumaronitrile in a room temperature acetonitrile solution and the Raman spectrum excited in resonance with the absorption band at 425 nm. The spectrum was interpreted with the help of density functional theory calculations. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V.
