Disease relevance of propanenitrile


Psychiatry related information on propanenitrile

  • The planar rigidized molecule fluorazene (FPP) undergoes fast reversible intramolecular charge transfer (ICT) in the excited state, with a reaction time of 12 ps in the polar solvent ethyl cyanide at -45 degrees C. The ICT state of FPP has a dipole moment mu(e)(ICT) of 13 D, much larger than that of the locally excited state LE (1 D) [6].
