Φ-order spectrophotokinetic characterisation and quantification of trans-cis oxyresveratrol reactivity, photodegradation and actinometry.
A new Φ-order kinetic method was proposed in this study for the investigation of trans-cis photoisomerization reaction of Oxyresveratol (ORVT) subjected to non-isosbestic irradiation. In ethanolic media, it has been proven that forward (Φ_(A→B)^(l_irr )) and reverse (Φ_(B→A)^(l_irr )) reaction quantum yields were dependent on the monochromatic irradation wavelength according to a sigmoid pattern over the spectral ranges of their electronic absorption (260-360 nm). An 11.4‐ and 6.6-fold increases were recorded for Φ_(B→A)^(_irr ) and Φ_(A→B)^(_irr ), respectively. The efficiencies of the former (Φ_(B→A)^(_irr ), ranging between 2.3 × 10-2 and 26.3 × 10-2) were 33 to 60 % smaller than those of the respective Φ_(A→B)^(l_irr ) measured at the irradiation wavelengths selected. Overall, between 57 and 97 % degradation of the initial trans-ORVT was observed under relatively weak light intensities, with the highest values recorded at the longest wavelengths. These findings strongly recommend protection from light in all situations of this biologically important phytomolecule that possesses therapeutic value of interest to pharmaceutical applications. The Φ-order kinetics also offered a simple way to develop a reliable actinometric method that proved ORVT to be an efficient actinometer for the dynamic range 295-360 nm. The usefulness of Φ‐order kinetics for the investigation and quantification of phytoproducts’ photodegradation was discussed.
