The dynamics of the intramolecular charge transfer reaction of p-dimethylaminobenzonitrile is examined in alcohol solutions. The rate of charge separation is faster than the solvent fluctuation rate, TEl. Comparison of the experimental results with a recent theoretical model by Nadler and Marcus suggests that the rate of charge transfer is controlled by fluctuations in the intramolecular vibrational modes, not solvent diffusion. In addition, the TICT emission is observed to undergo a time dependent Stokes shift. The spectral relaxation is examined and compared to dielectric continuum models of solvent relaxation.
