From September 10 to 14, 2017, the Joint EMLG (European Molecular Liquids Group)/JMLG (Japanese Molecular Liquids Group) Annual Meeting 2017 was held at Fukuoka University, where Kaori Fujii (Major of Applied Chemistry, Graduate School of Science and Engineering) received the Poster Award.

Fujii examined the excited-state proton transfer of cyanonaphthols in protic ionic liquids by time-resolved fluorescence. As a result, a new fluorescent component was observed in an excited state in certain protic ionic liquids. It is considered that, based on detailed analysis of the spectral dynamics, the new component comes from cyanonaphthols and anions in PILs, which led to the discovery of the reaction mechanism unique to ionic liquids. This achievement, as well as the presentation, was highly commended for the award.

Title of Presentation:
‘Excited-state proton transfer of cyanonaphthols in protic ionic liquids’
