The equilibrium constants of the hydrogen bonding (HB) between hydroxylic donors, ROH, and an MLCT-excited Ru(bpy) 2 (bpz) 2+ complex, 1(T), correlated with ROH empirical HB acidities, which could be used for evaluating the unimolecular rate constants of concerted electron-proton transfer within the H-bonded phenol-1(T) exciplexes.
