The dynamic process of intramolecular excimer formation in meso and racemic 6,8-diphenyltridecanes (PS2), diastereoisomeric dimer model systems for polystyrene, was investigated by using picosecond pulse radiolysis. Monomeric flourescence of meso PS2 was found to decay with time constants of 3.5 and 0.5 ns.
