The time-resolved fluorescence spectra of two pyrylium-ion derivatives have been investigated. In the temperature range 77 to 190 K, a red-shift of the fluorescence spectra of the order of 25-70 nm is observed and assigned to a fast solvent relaxation process. Time-resolved experiments carried out at 160 K showed a rapid decrease of the emission from the non-relaxed excited state at short wavelengths and a corresponding build-up of the emission of the relaxed one at longer wavelengths. At 120 K emission from the non-relaxed electronic state is predominant. © 1986.
