Abstract

The dynamics of solvation of an excited chromophore in pure water and in a restricted space with a limited number of water molecules have been studied. The time-dependent Stokes shift of Coumarin 480 (C480) and Coumarin 460 (C460) were measured using femtosecond fluorescence upconversion and time-correlated single-photon-counting techniques. The system with a limited number of water molecules was an inclusion complex of Coumarin dyes with γ-cyclodextrin (γCD). The results of molecular dynamics simulations are compared with the observed solvent response in pure water and in the γCD cavity. The observed relaxation times range from
