• Excited-state proton transfer from pyranine to acetate in methanol

Excited-state proton transfer (ESPT) of pyranine (8-hydroxypyrene-1,3,6-trisulphonate, HPTS) to acetate in methanol has been studied by steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy. The rate constant of direct proton transfer from pyranine to acetate ($k_1$) is calculated to be $\sim 1 \times 10^9$ M-1 s-1. This is slower by about two orders of magnitude than that in bulk water ($8 \times 10^{10}$ M-1 s-1) at 4 M acetate.
