Resumo

The kinetics of the decomposition reaction of 4-(4,5-diphenyl-1H-imidazol-2-yl)phenyl acetate (1) in basic alcoholic media was investigated, using a simple fluorescence (FL) spectrophotometric procedure. The process was conveniently studied using FL, since the triphenylimidazole-derived ester 1 and its reaction products (the corresponding phenol 2 and phenolate 2(-)) are all highly fluorescent (phi(FL) > 37%). By carefully selecting excitation and emission wavelengths, observed rate constants k(1) in the order of 10(-3) to 10(-2) s(-1) were obtained from either reactant consumption (lambda(ex) = 300 nm, lambda(em) = 400 nm) or product formation (lambda(ex) = 350 nm, lambda(em) = 475 nm); these were shown to be kinetically equivalent. Intensity-decay time profiles also gave a residual FL intensity parameter, shown to be associated to the distribution of produced species 2 and 2(-), according to the basicity of the medium. Studying the reaction in both methanol (MeOH) and isopropanol (iPrOH), upon addition of HO-, provided evidence that the solvent's conjugate base is the active nucleophilic species. When different bases were used (tBuO(-), HO-, DBU and TEA), bimolecular rate constants k(bim) ranging from 4.5 to 6.5 L mol(-1) s(-1) were obtained, which proved to be non-dependent on the base pK(aH), suggesting specific base catalysis for the decomposition of 1 in alcoholic media.
