Following $S_1 \leftarrow S_0$ excitation, the decay consists of a prompt short-lived component matching the measured singlet fluorescence lifetime and a second, very long-lived, component. The ratios between the singlet channel signal to that of the long-lived species for these bands are not the same: 3.03$\pm$0.38, 1.48$\pm$0.33, 1.75$\pm$0.19, 3.11$\pm$0.36 and 2.77$\pm$0.35 for the origin, $\nu_{15}$, $\nu_{6a}$, $\beta_{cc}$ and $\nu_1$, respectively. The fact that the $\nu_{15}$ and $\nu_{6a}$ modes have low ratios suggests that the normal coordinates of these modes could lie near the reaction path for the formation of the long lived species. Thus, these results combined with theoretical calculations may potentially give an indication of the identity of the long-lived species.
