We have recently constructed an apparatus capable of measuring time resolved emission on a subpicosecond timescale following ultraviolet excitation. Using this equipment, it is possible to study many fundamental chemical processes in fluid solution. We have studied two aspects of the chemistry of polar solutions : microscopic solvation dynamics about polar dye molecules and fast intramolecular electron transfer. Microscopic solvation relaxation appears to be the rate limiting step in the intramolecular transfer reaction of the excited state of 9,9'-bianthryl.
