Fluorescence quenching rate constants of aromatic hydrocarbons by silver ions are determined. The values obtained are not well interpreted with thermodynamical considerations based on an electron transfer mechanism, but related to the intersystem crossing rate constant of the fluorescer. Triplet state formation in the course of quenching has been confirmed by laser photolysis studies.
