Abstract

Picosecond emission spectroscopy is used to examine the intramolecular charge transfer reaction of N,N-dimethylaminophenyl sulphone in alcohol solution. The effects of nonequilibrium distributions on the reaction surface as well as nonadiabatic effects arising from the time scale of the reactive process and solvent diffusion are discussed. The implications of these data on the motion along the reaction potential energy surface are described.
