The photochemical properties of the fluorene derivative (7-benzothiazol-2-yl-9,9-didecylfluoren-2-yl)diphenylamine (1) in hexane and CH2Cl2 were studied under linear (one-photon) and nonlinear (two-photon) excitation. The quantum yield of the photochemical reaction, 0, for 1 in hexane was in the range (3.5-5) x 10(-5) for one-photon excitation (UVGL-25 and Xe-lamps) and was nearly the same under two-photon excitation (femtosecond laser with pulse duration 120 fs, average power similar to10 mW, repetition rate f = 1 kHz). The values of in CH2Cl2 were (2.5-4) x 10(-5) for one-photon excitation and increased 50-80 times under two-photon excitation. This increase can be explained by an additional one-photon absorption process from the first electronically excited state, resulting in the observed enhancement in photochemical decomposition.
