However, recent results show that the geometry is primarily determined by the solvent and not by the molecule itself. A detailed analysis of the vibronic structure of benzene phosphorescence allows one to calculate the magnitude and the direction of this distortion by several different means. These include: the intensities of progressions in $\nu_{8}(1600 cm^{-1})$ and $\nu_{1}(1000 cm^{-1})$, the intensity of the 0,0 transition, the intensities of certain overtones, and the zero-point energy shifts upon isotopic substitution. Geometries calculated by these different approaches compare quite favorably with each other in a number of crystalline solvents. en_US dc.format.extent 105391 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title DISTORTIONS OF TRIPLET BENZENE---SOLVENT EFFECTS. en_US dc.type article en_US
