The contribution of water molecules is small and their relaxation is only slightly coupled with the charge transfer in the coumarin dye [84]. Similar studies in benzene–acetonitrile and benzene–methanol mixtures allow reproducing quite well the experimental time-dependent Stokes shifts. The motion of benzene molecules and rotational diffusion of acetonitrile in the vicinity of the dye were studied in atomic details. In the case of methanol, the complex dynamics of the hydrogen bonding network around the dye was observed Interfacial Behavior of Fluorescent Dyes 29 [85].

O. Yesylevskyy Spectroscopy of Molecular Relaxations Solvation dynamics is the process of rearrangement of solvent dipoles around an instantaneously created or reorganized solute charge or dipole in the excited state. Electronic excitation results in instantaneous redistribution of electronic density generating the change in the dipole moment of the probe. Equilibrium in interaction with surrounding dipoles is disrupted and their relaxation to new equilibrium can be observed as the shift of fluorescence spectra in time.

The solutes may range from single ions to the realistic chromophores [83]. Coumarin 153 is used as a prototype in the studies of solvation dynamics. The charge distributions in the ground and the first excited state of this dye were computed using the quantum chemistry methods and used in subsequent classical all-atom MD simulations. The MD trajectories provide solvation responses, characteristic times, and Stokes shifts of the dye, which could be compared with experimental results directly. The dye was equilibrated in the ground state.
