Photophysical study of highly photoactive bis(-2)-benzylidenemalononitrile (BBM) has been investigated in solution using UV-vis, fluorescence and NMR spectroscopic techniques. The seletive photodissociation can be attributed to the presence of highly polarized C=C bond, attached to dicyno groups (CN). Nevertheless, the observed photodissociation of BBM is highly solvent specific and temperature sensitive. The product A (2-(4-formylbenzylidene)malononitrile), formed by the selective photodissociation of BBM under UV irradiation has been isolated and identified by NMR studies. The photodissociation followed the pseudo 1st order kinetics with a rate constant (k) 10(-3).10(-4).s(-1). Moreover the mechanistic study of selective photodissociation of bis(-2)-benzylidenemalononitrile (BBM) has been investigated and found to follow the dipolar mechanism path during photochemical reaction.
