    • Abstract


      The absorption and fluorescenc of 9-chloro-10,10′-bis-(dichloromethyleno)-(9′H)-10,10′-dihydro-9,9′-bianthryl (CDDB) has been studied in polar and nonpolar solvents and also in microcrystal. In polar solvents CDDB emits from two molecular forms, the normal charge transfer form (locally excited, LE form) and the solvent-induced twisted intramolecular charge transfer (TICT) form. Electrically, CDDB possesses semiconducting property with conductivity approximately 10−9 S cm−1 and this conductivity further increases to 10−7 S cm−1 on photoexcitation. Intramolecular charge transfer by hopping mechanism is assumed to be the main process for controlling activation energy and electronic conduction.
