AbstractNewly synthesized, differently substituted chalcones (1,3-diaryl-2-propen-1-ones) have been studied using steady-state and time-resolved techniques combined with quantum-chemical modelling. To explore spectroscopic structure - property relationships the substituent (acceptor moiety) was chosen according to systematic variation in the Hammett parameter. It was shown that photophysical properties of the studied donor-acceptor (D-A) molecules can be predicted in terms of a simple model from the properties of individual chromophores (composite-model of decoupled moieties: donor (D) and acceptor (A)). The results of spectroscopic measurements also indicate that for investigated D-A fluorophores in medium-polar solvent, the initially populated, locally excited (LE) state (where the fundamental role plays donor moiety (D*-A)) reacts further to produce intramolecular charge transfer (ICT) state. Additionally, the experimental absorption (Mge) and fluorescence (Meg) transition dipole moments were calculated on the basis of spectroscopic data and compared with results of our quantum-chemical calculations. The absorption transition dipole moment was found to vary linearly with the Hammett substituent coefficient (σ).
