Rate constants for the excited-state proton transfer reaction of carbazole in aqueous alkaline solution have been determined using picosecond single photon counting. Fluorescence decay measurements show that the back reaction is slow compared to the fluorescence decay time and therefore equilibrium is not attained in the excited state. The validity of a pK value for the lowest excited state determined from steady-state fluorescence measurements assuming equilibrium is discussed. It is concluded that the thermodynamic pK value for carbazole is 10.98.
