A detailed study on the photophysical properties of a series of alkoxy substituted
diphenylbutadienes in solution and in the solid state providing a molecular level
understanding of the factors controlling their solid-state luminescence behavior is reported.
Our studies provide clear evidence for exciton splitting in the solid state resulting in red-
shifted emission for this class of materials. The role of the number of alkoxy substituents and
the alkyl chain length in controlling the nature of the molecular packing and consequently ...
