Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

28 Scopus citations


The absorption and luminescence of syn- and anti-paracyclonaphthane are reported and compared to the excimer emission from 1,4-dimethyl-naphthalene. The spectra provide evidence for excimer interactions in the fluorescent state but not in the triplet state.
