Abstract

The study of the criteria necessary for a solvation model to successfully interpret the most detailed recent experiments in pure methanol shows that the extent to which a solvent relaxation accompanied by a continuous spectral blueshift would contribute to the measured signal cannot be decided. We demonstrate that previously derived properties - like the time for the signal rise or fall, solvation time, branching ratio from experimental solvation data are model dependent and cannot be used to choose between alternative solvation schemes.
