Strategies for Red-Shifting Type I Photoinitiators: Internal Electric Fields versus Lewis Acids versus Increasing Conjugation

Hill, Nicholas; Coote, Michelle


Time-dependent density functional theory calculations were performed on derivatives of Irgacure 2959, a water-soluble, acetophenone-type photoinitiator, in order to assess the relative merits and drawbacks of three distinct ways of modifying its photochemistry: Lewis acid complexation, changing the amount of conjugation in the molecule, and application of an internal electric field through inclusion of a remote charged functional group. The effectiveness of each of the three methods was...[Show more]
