Stab in the dark: By means of transient absorption studies, following Q- and Soret-band excitation, and ab initio calculations on meso-tetraphenylporphyrinato magnesium(II) (MgTPP) and meso-tetraphenylporphyrinato cadmium(II) (CdTPP), it is shown that electronic relaxation following Soret-band excitation of porphyrins with a heavy central atom is mediated by a hitherto disregarded dark state (see picture).
