Non-Adiabatic Quantum Dynamics of [Re(CO)3(N,N)(L)]n+ complexes

Salle de séminaire IRSAMC, Jeudi 30 Novembre, 14h - 15h

Rhenium(I) carbonyl-diimine photosensitizers are extensively used in a wide variety of chemical and biological functions (1). On the basis of advanced spectroscopic studies, time-resolved measurements allow to follow the excited state decay that governs their photo-physical and photo-chemical properties (2). However, the interpretation can be difficult due to the complexity of the system in terms of several excited states and decay pathways involved. In this context, non-adiabatic quantum dynamics simulations provide a valuable tool to understand and ultimately control the mechanism of the ultrafast excited state dynamics of these systems. In this seminar, I will present a study of the ultrafast luminescent decay of [Re(CO)3(phen)(im)]+ (phen : phenantroline, im : imidazole) based on electronic structure data (3,4) and wave-packet propagations (5). A carefully analysis of the results elucidates the main features that drive the ultrafast intersystem crossing (ISC) and the long-lived luminescence.
