Phosphorescence quenching and flash photolysis experiments demonstrate that photoinduced intra-assembly triplet-triplet energy transfer can take place via a 2-ureido-4[1H]-pyrimidinone-bridged benzophenone-naphthalene assembly I with a rate constant of 3.0 x 106 s-1 and an efficiency of 95% in CH2Cl2. This new finding suggests that with high binding strength and directionality, the 2-ureido-4[1H]-pyrimidinone hydrogen-bonded module may serve as a new model to illustrate the fundamental principles governing the triplet-triplet energy-transfer process through hydrogen bonds.
