Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Abstract

Solid-state electronic absorption, fluorescence emission and C-13 CPMAS spectroscopies have been applied to a series of aromatic Schiff bases displaying both ground and excited state intramolecular proton transfer phenomena. All the results can be explained on the basis of a thermal equilibrium between enolimine and keto-enamine tautomeric forms in the crystalline state. Most of the studied compounds are thermochromic. However, a few are photochromic. The carbon-13 NMR data in the solid state show, in general, residual (C-13,N-14) dipolar coupling effects. In certain cases, however, where fast proton transfer occurs in the ground state, these effects are shown to be self-decoupled.
