Resonance Raman study of short-time photodissociation dynamics of the charge-transfer band absorption of nitrobenzene in cyclohexane solution.

Resonance Raman spectra were obtained for nitrobenzene in cyclohexane solution with excitation wavelengths in resonance with the charge-transfer (CT) band absorption spectrum. These spectra indicate that the Franck-Condon region photodissociation dynamics have multidimensional character with motion mainly along the nominal NO2 symmetric stretch mode (nu 11… (More)
