The recently described phenomenological model strongly adiabatic electron transfer et in the lowest excited state S1 of donoracceptor molecules has been developed in more detail. The model has been generalized to include simultaneously two types of electron transfer, namely adiabatic et in S1 and diabatic et S2 to S1. A general definition of the et reactant survival probability is given in terms of the surviving charge of the donor. A relationship between the survival probability and the integrated emission intensity from S1 and S2 is established. The use of this model is demonstrated employing the recent simulation results from our group on the excited state et of bianthryl BA and 49-anthryl-N,N-dimethylaniline ADMA.
