Abstract [en]

The advantages of using model systems for spectroscopic studies of conjugated polymers and interface formation, as well as for charge-induced electronic and geometric structural changes, are discussed. The electronic structure of a diphenylpolyene, α,ω-diphenyltetradecaheptaene, or DP7, is an example of a model molecular system studied using X-ray and Ultraviolet Photoelectron Spectroscopy, XPS, and UPS. The spectra are interpreted with the help of the results from MNDO, VEH and INDO/S-CI quantum chemical calculations. The frontier orbitals of DP7 are localized mostly on the polyene chain portion of the molecule, resulting in a high degree of separation of the phenyl and polyene parts of the π-system. The INDO calculations show two regions of shake-up features corresponding to a benzene-like part and a polyene-like part. The most important individual shake-up transitions, which contribute to the two observed shake-up spectral features, involve one-electron redistributions separable into contributions from the polyene chain and from the phenyl groups. The analysis indicates the extent to which many chemical and electronic properties of DP7 are expected to be similar to those of (at least short chain) trans-polyacetylene.
