      A computer-controlled X-band time domain electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectrometer, with a time resolution of the order of 0.5μsec, has been constructed with many of the crucial microwave components designed and fabricated by the Microwave Engineering Group of TIFR. The spectrometer operates either in a microwave power pulsed mode for determination of spin-lattice relaxation times by the saturation recovery technique or in the kinetic mode for determination of the time dependence of EPR signal after laser excitation. It has an automatic frequency control, an automatic phase control and, most importantly, a field-frequency lock which ensures good stability of the EPR line positions enabling signal averaging for extended periods. The constructional details of the spectrometer and its performance in both the modes are described here by reporting results on certain typical systems.

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The molecular charge-transfer absorption bands have been observed in solution of dimethyl sulphoxide (DMSO) and tetrachloro-p-benzoquinone (chloranil) in chloroform and cyclohexanone. The stability constant, the thermodynamic parameter of the complex and the extinction co-efficient of CT bands at 350 nm in chloroform and 360 nm in cylohexanone have been estimated on the assumption of the 1:1 complex formation. Detection of ESR signal of the solution of chloranil in pure DMSO (g ≈ 2) indicates the formation of chloranil radical anion, the precursor being the charge-transfer complex, which dissociates partly in high dielectric constant DMSO.
