    Recently, a modified form of the steady state treatment for the determination of excited state proton transfer rate constants was successfully applied to a variety of oxygen-and nitrogen-center aromatic excited-state acids. These compounds shared the characteristic of being more acidic in the first excited state, S1, than in the ground state, S0, and of requiring a concentrated mineral acid medium for protonation. The quantitation of excited-state proton transfer kinetics is presently extended to several protonated N-heterocyclic amines that are weak enough bases in the excited state to require concentrated mineral acids for protonation.
