 Title: $S_{0}$ CIS-TRANS ISOMERIZATION OF OCTATETRAENE AS DETECTED BY HIGH RESOLUTION EMISSION SPECTROSCOPY Creators: Kohler, Bryan E.; Spiglanin, Thomas A. Issue Date: 1981 Publisher: Ohio State University Abstract: The ground state potential energy surface of octatetraene is investigated to gain an understanding of the complicated cis-trans isomerization which occurs in this linear polyene. High resolution emission spectra at 4.2k clearly show the presence of octatetraene isomers never before reported. A knowledge of the ground state surface is fundamental in understanding the photoisomerization in this molecule and applications will be discussed.
