The size and shape of the molecules of the aliphatic hydrocarbon solvent have a strong influence on the magnitude of the anomalous spectral shift in the fluorescence maximum of the charge transfer (CT) state of a high-generation dendrimer. Its molecules no longer exists in an open extended form but exhibit a compact, globular structure, and the dipole moment of the CT state in pentane is larger than in cyclohexane.
