Abstract : A local-mode model with Morse potentials is used to calculate the Franck-Condon factors for internal conversion and predissociation in benzene. From a comparison with single vibronic level excitation data it is concluded that the absence of fluorescene from the higher vibrational levels of singlet-excited benzene is not due to predissociation.
