Contrary to an earlier report, the photoisomerization of trans-2-[4′-(dimethylamino)styryl]benzothiazole occurs in all the solvents including viscous glycerol and it follows not the adiabatic, but the non-adiabatic path. Relative higher fluorescence quantum yield obtained in glycerol is due to restriction on photoisomerization.
