The absorption and fluorescence transition dipole moments (ge and eg) for ethyl 5-(4-aminophenyl)-3-amino-2, 4-dicyanobenzoate (EAADCy) and ethyl 5-(4-dimethylaminophenyl)-3-amino-2, 4-dicyanobenzoate (EDMAADCy) have been determined on the basis of the steady-state and time-resolved spectroscopic measurements and semiempirical quantum-chemical calculations. The values of the transition dipole moments of perpendicular and flattened forms of the investigated molecules were estimated as a function of the solvent polarity. Noted differences between the absorption and emission transition dipole moments (i.e., ge/ge ≠ 1) confirm that the change of the electronic and molecular structure take place in the excited state.
