In the ideal case where every photon is detected with the same probability, the value of m should be 1 since if the quantum yield is 1, every absorption leads to an emitted photon and the measured absorbance, [A.
Irradiated for 3 min with a 50 W high-pressure mercury lamp at 25[degrees]C, ESR intensity of BCTE-HABI system is obviously more regular and higher than that of o-Cl-HBAI system, which indicates the higher quantum yield of triarylbiimdazolyl radicals produced respectively.
