Quenching of triplet states of organic compounds by coordination complexes

F. Wilkinson
1975 Pure and Applied Chemistry  
Recent evidence which establishes that electronic energy transfer is the most common mechanism for quenching of organic triplet states by coordination compounds is discussed. It is pointed out that only when energy transfer produces ligand field excited states is there likely to be markedly different behaviour observed from that expected for a typical organic triplet energy acceptor. Transfer to produce internal ligand and ligand to metal or metal to ligand charge-transfer excited states is not
