Various adiabatic photochemical mechanisms are compared which lead to a product in the excited state and therefore often to strongly red-shifted fluorescence. The applicational aspects of this strong red shift are outlined with respect to scinitillators, solar collectors, and biological fluorescence probese. As an example, the unusual fluorecence properties… CONTINUE READING
