Resumen:
The UV-spectroscopic behavior of KI contact ion pairs (CIPs) dissolved in supercritical NH3 was studied combining classical molecular dynamics simulations with electronic structure calculations, and the results show that an abrupt change of the photoexcitation route of KI CIPs occurs at very low solvent densities. Few NH3 solvating molecules are required to hamper the well-known photoinduced intramolecular electron (e-) transfer observed in isolated ion pairs of alkali metal halides in the vapor drawing the e- to solvent cavities leading to a charge-transfer-to-solvent process.3 was studied combining classical molecular dynamics simulations with electronic structure calculations, and the results show that an abrupt change of the photoexcitation route of KI CIPs occurs at very low solvent densities.
