A multimode vibrational analysis of the intermolecular reorganization energy for anthracene, tetracene and pentacene was presented. It was found that the first ionization of each molecule exhibits a high frequency vibronic structure. Results show that theis feature is the consequence of the collective action of several vibrational modes. The relaxation energies and vibronic coupling constants obtained from the fit of the photoelectron spectra with the linear vibronic nmodel were also discussed.
