Photonics of tetramethoxy-1,4-distyrylbenzene in MeCN was studied by absorption, luminescence, and laser kinetic spectroscopies. Photoinduced transformations of the compound in question involve cis–trans-isomerization, intersystem crossing, fast and delayed fluorescence, and electron transfer. The ground-state structure and vibrational spectrum, as well as the energies and structures of excited singlet and triplet states were calculated by the DFT/PBE and TDDFT/PBE0 methods. The assignment of vibronic bands in the absorption spectra was made and the energies of corresponding transitions were calculated.

Key words
