attached to the cores in the focal points of the dendrons (series 12). The influence of functional groups such as CHO, CN, Br, etc., in 9-12 decreases with increasing generation. The fluorescence quantum yield of stilbenoid dendrons is high [21]; nevertheless, their emission can be partly or completely quenched by substituents like Br40 or by an efficient energy

or charge transfer to the core. The latter effects are discussed in Section 7.

All A values mentioned above are related to measurements in diluted solutions. The aggregation phenomenon, described in Section 5, can have some impact on the absorption and fluorescence bands—particularly on the long-wavelength tailing of the bands [45]. The comparison of solution measurements and measurements in films, as well as the comparison of photoluminescence (PL) and electroluminescence (EL) led to some elucidation [42, 43]; however, more experiments are necessary for a satisfying understanding of the influence of ground state aggregation and excited state aggregation (excimer formation) on absorption and fluorescence bands.
