Abstract.

We explain why solvent reorganization can induce both red- and blue-shifting of vibrational transitions of a particular probe molecule upon excitation to the S1 electronic state. We observe with femtosecond vibrational spectroscopy, after hydrogen-bond cleavage dynamics, an additional blue shift of the carbonyl stretch of coumarin 102 of 7 cm-1 when dissolved in chloroform.
