Abstract The effect of viscosity on the bimolecular electron transfer quenching of a series of coumarins by N,N-dimethylaniline was investigated using steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy. The data reveal that the static and transient stages of the quenching become dominant as viscosity increases. When extracting the quenching rate constants using a simple Stern–Volmer analysis, a decrease of the rate constant with increasing driving force is observed above ~2 cP. However, this apparent Marcus inverted region, already reported several times with the same system in micelles and room temperature ionic liquids, totally vanishes when analyzing the data with a model accounting for the static and transient stages of the quenching. It appears that the apparent Marcus inverted region arises from the neglect of these quenching regimes together with the use of fluorophores with different excited-state lifetimes.
