Reaction scheme.

Following light excitation of acridine to the first excited triplet state T1  by H-transfer from fluorene the radical pair triplet state TRP  can be formed. The radical pair quickly reacts back to the educt ground states. If you find this animation too fast, look at  the individual pictures, or a static picture with the reaction geometry. View also the diagram of the energy levels involved showing the transitions relevant for the H-transfer.
