Solvent Induced Charge Separation in the Excited States of Symmetrical Ethylene: A Direct Reaction Field Study


The polarization of the excited states of near-perpendicularly twisted ethylene in the condensed phase has been investigated by means of direct reaction field (DRF) calculations. In these calculations, five organic solvents with variable polarity and polarizability were simulated by 50 discrete, classically described solvent molecules. The excited states of… (More)
