Title:
Photoisomerization of diphenylpolyenes: A prototype unimolecular reaction? 
Abstract:
The photoisomerization dynamics of diphenylpolyenes, in particular of trans-stilbene and E,E-diphenyl-(1,3)-butadiene, continue to be the subject of controversial discussion. A key question addresses the time scale of intramol. vibrational energy redistribution (IVR) in conjunction with the validity of applying statistical rate theory to these reactions. We present new exptl. results from fluorescence up-conversion and pump-probe absorption spectroscopy in supercrit. solvents. Our studies confir...    »
