Fluorescence and transient absorption spectra of zinc-porphyrin (ZnP)-viologen linked compounds with various methylene groups indicate that intramolecular electron-transfer from the singlet or triplet excited state of ZnP to viologen occurred and a biradical was generated in the ionic liquid (1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate) at various temperatures (283-343 K). The decay rate constants of the biradical decreased in 0-0.2∼0.5 T and became constant in 0.2∼0.5-1 T. Unique effects of temperature and methylene chain length on electron-transfer and magnetic field effects were observed and are probably due to the properties of the ionic liquid as compared with benzonitrile.
