Abstract: The coefficient of transforming the absorbed light to the heat was determined by laser-induced opto-acoustic spectroscopy (LIOAS) for ten derivatives of 2-hydroxybenzophenone in cyclohexane and acetonitrile. For most derivatives the value of the coefficient is equal to one in both solvents as for the parent 2-hydroxybenzophenone. The largest deviation from one upwards outside the error limit is observed for 5-nitro and 4-propoxy derivatives. It is suggested that there are derivatives in this class of substances which exhibit a more effective transformation of electronic energy to heat than the parent 2-hydroxybenzophenone. Less effective than 2-hydroxybenzophenone are 4-nitro and 5-methoxy derivatives, which indicates that longer living states are involved in the radiationless process. The effect of intramolecular hydrogen bond on the radiationless process is discussed.
