Abstract: Absorption and emission spectra of some bischromophoric dyes, having 4-(p-N,N-dimethylaminostyryl) pyridinium units flanked by spacers with 2, 3, 4 and 6 methylene units, in different organic solvents have been subjected to multiple regression analysis with twelve different solvent parameters. Optimization of multiparametric regression models has been achieved by successive exclusion of variable technique. The validity of the regression models has been established from the linearity of the calculated and observed transition energy relating to absorption spectra and Stokes shift. Variation in the trends in change of photophysical behavior of the dyes results in classification of the solvents into two distinct classes, viz., hydroxylic and dipolar aprotic solvents. A higher dipole moment of the excited state than of the ground state of all these dyes has been deduced from the Stokes shift. The study on quantitative Stokes shift-solvent parameter relationship reveals a significant change in the behavior of dyes with two methylene units as compared to the other dyes. To this effect different types of hydrogen bonding has been proposed.
