Photo-induced β-bond dissociation of phenacyl phenyl sulfide (PPS) has been investigated in acetonitrile by laser photolysis techniques. Direct excitation of PPS at 295 K provided the acetylmethyl and phenylthiyl radicals with a quantum yield (Φrad) of 0.18, whereas triplet sensitization using xanthone revealed an efficiency for β-cleavage of triplet PPS (α rad) of ≥0.64. From disagreement between the Φrad and α rad values, it was concluded that both the lowest excited single and triplet states are reactive for β-bond dissociation in PPS. The photochemical processes of excited PPS, including β-cleavage, are discussed in detail.
