The green fluorescence protein (GFP) has been widely used as biological markers in living cells, since it is noninvasive and does not need any substrate or coenzyme to fluoresce. The cyclization and oxidation reaction among three amino acids yield the fluorophore of GFP (p-HBDI). The chromophore without protein matrix shows low quantum yield of fluorescence which can be understood as conformational relaxation leading to radiationless deactivation. For suppression of conformational relaxation, o-HBDI was synthesized as an ortho isomer of p-HBDI. Earlier study revealed that o-HBDI undergoes ESIPT reaction with ultrafast rate. Various derivatives of o-HBDI, which have different functional groups like -Br, -NO2, -OMe and -phenyl, are synthesized to clarify the effect of the electronic property to ESIPT reaction. Also the photophysical property results in a wide spectral range of fluorescence, which gives feasibility of application like OLED. The time-resolved fluorescence measurement with high time resolution will unveil the ESIPT dynamics of derivatives of o-HBDI, about 30 fs. The ultrafast proton transfer can initiate coherent nuclear wavepacket motion in the product keto isomer, which is manifested by the oscillations of the time-resolved signals. Since there are dissimilarity of the vibrational frequencies in spite of the similarity of skeletal geometry, these TRF results are remarkable. We have performed quantum mechanical calculations to understand the origin of oscillatory components appeared in time resolved signals. This theoretical verification can figure out the proper structural change during the reaction and prove the possibility of TRF spectroscopy as an observer which collects the geometrical information of reaction dynamics.
