The absorption and fluorescence of 16-(1-pyrene)-hexadecanoicacid adsorbed on silica have been investigated. Time-resolved transient diffuse reflectance spectra were recorded following pulsed nanosecond laser excitation at 355 nm of pyrene, 1-methylpyrene and 16-(1-pyrene)-hexadecanoicacid adsorbed on silica. In addition to a rapidly decaying transient, absorbing at 420 nm assigned as the triplet state, and of the radical cation, absorbing at 460 nm, another long living transient species absorbing at 420 nm was observed for 16-(1-pyrene)-hexadecanoic acid. The decay is reversible but complete recovery takes several hours. Although no definitive assignment could be made for this transient several possibilities are discussed. The radical cations of the investigated molecules are formed by a biphotonic process. The non-exponential decay of the radical cations could be analyzed in the framework of a Gaussian distribution of free energy barriers.
