The main features in the ultraviolet spectrum of poly(methylphenylsilylene) can be interpreted as falling into four regions. These assignments of electronic transitions could be useful for the understanding of photoluminescence spectra, in increasing the efficacy of an interpreting the results of photobleaching experiments, in clarifying the mechanisms of photodegradation in poly(arylsilylene), and in the design of related new materials for specific optical applications.
