The photo-physical properties of bis((4-(phenylethynyl)phenyl)ethynyl)bis(tributylphosphine) platinum(II) with 2,2-bis(methylol)propionic acid (bis-MPA) dendritic substituents were studied. The introduction of dendrimer capping was found to give rise to protection from oxygen quenching of phosphorescent states with a considerably longer decay time of the phosphorescence (0.1 -0.4 ms range) for solvents with oxygen removed or dendrimers of larger size (G2-G4) or higher concentration. Presence of oxygen reduces the phosphorescence decay time to below 1 microsecond. Two-photon induced fluorescence and z-scan of fs pulses at low pulse repetition frequency at approximately 720 nm revealed that the two-photon absorption cross-section is in the order of 0.01 cm/GW, well below the 0.34cm/GW reported by Staromlynska et al [J. Staromlynska, T. McKay and P. Wilson, J. Appl. Phys. 88, 1726 (2000)] and similar for all dendrimer complexes as well as the non-capped Pt-acetylide. Z-scans performed at high pulse repetition frequency gives an apparent two-photon absorption cross-section that is higher due to the population of excited triplet states, and the contribution from incoherent multiphoton absorption involving the triplet states.
