The main aim of the research was to obtain a detailed insight
into the photochemical and photophysical properties of various triaryl-2-
pyrazolines, with a view to understanding better their role in photoconductive
materials. The technique of laser flash photolysis, in both
transmission and diffuse reflectance mode, was employed to study the compounds
as microcrystalline powders, within polymer films, on fabrics and in solution.
In those media where the triplet state was not directly observed it was
sensitized with a suitable triplet energy donor such as benzophenone. [Continues.]
