Picosecond time-resolved emission studies of protonated schiff bases of all-trans- and 11-cis-retinals suggest that the excited state relaxes within 7 ps. Studies of the effect of temperature and exchange of the Schiff base proton with deuterium on the emission kinetics suggest that these model compounds behave quite similarly to visual chromophore rhodopsin.
