We present results which suggest that the photophysics of S(1) toluene is significantly more complicated than that of the related molecules p-fluorotoluene or p-difluorobenzene. We have measured a range of photoelectron spectra for a number of S(1) internal energies, on different time scales and at different temperatures, in an attempt to unravel the competing processes, but the final conclusion remains outstanding.
