TL;DR: In this paper, the radiative rates in intramolecular full CT excited states are temperature-dependent: fluorescence emission is thermally activated, and the equilibrium structures in both classes of states correspond to practically pure CT configurations.
Abstract: Contrary to the general rules, the radiative rates in intramolecular full CT excited states are temperature-dependent: fluorescence emission is thermally activated. This is demonstrated on the TICT states and on highly polar intramolecular exciplexes. The radiative (back) electron transfer from the equilibrium structure of these excited states is highly forbidden often due to zero or minimal orbital overlap (nodal plane effects); thus, the equilibrium structures in both classes of states correspond to practically pure CT configurations. Vibrational activation (100-600 cm{sup {minus}1}) is predominantly responsible for the observed fluorescence and presents a new key to the structure of these excited species. Thermally activated emission is predicted for other flexible molecules with a strongly forbidden transition.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: This paper presents a meta-modelling procedure called "Continuum Methods within MD and MC Simulations 3072", which automates the very labor-intensive and therefore time-heavy and expensive process of integrating discrete and continuous components into a discrete-time model.

TL;DR: The restriction of intramolecular rotation is identified as a main cause for the AIE effect and a series of new fluorescent and phosphorescent AIE systems with emission colours covering the entire visible spectral region and luminescence quantum yields up to unity are developed.
