Abstract The non-covalent interactions between 2-oxazoline containing phenols and an aliphatic polyamidines as well as an inorganic base were studied. The reaction of a weak acid with a strong base results in the formation of the deprotonated species and subsequently in the formation of a new electronic structure. A bathochromic shift of the wavelength of the absorption maxima of the chromophores bounded to polyamidine was observed. Depending on the structure of the chromophore, the shift of the absorption maxima is 40-100 nm. The changes in photochemical behavior can be explained by the higher portion of quinoid structures in the conjugated p-system. The degree of deprotonation is dependent on the molar ratio of the chromophore and the polymeric base. Analogous results were obtained with an inorganic base.
