The LE band fluorescence enhancement of p-N,N-dimethylaminobenzoic acid (DMABA) and p-N,N-dimethylaminobenzonitrile (DMABN) was found in aprotic acetonitrile and butyronitrile at the addition of LaCl(3). The corresponding ICT fluorescence band remains unchanged. This enhancement is explained by the decrease of the internal conversion rate constant in a coordination complex with LaCl(3). The formation of the coordination complex between DMABA and LaCl(3) in ethanol is accompanied by the efficient fluorescence quenching in LE and ICT bands, in parallel with the enhancement of ICT/LE emission ratio. The experimental data are well described by the proposed kinetic schemes.
