SOLVENT INFLUENCE ON THE ELECTRONIC ABSORPTION SPECTRA OF ANTHRACENE
The effect of some solvents on electronic absorption spectra of anthracene is studied here by using the cell model of a pure liquid proposed by Takehiro Abe. The linear dependence between the Abe parameters a and b for the studied solution makes possible estimation of the dipole moment and polarizability in the first excited state of anthracene. The obtained values are in a good agreement with the high degree of p-electron cloud delocalization in the anthracene molecule.
