The creation of vibrationally very hot molecules after internal conversion is seen for the first time in a liquid environment. Cooling of the excited molecules occurs within several 10 -11 s.Excitation of azulene with photons of 19000 cm -1 leads to a transient internal temperature of 1200 K. The excess population of vibrational modes of 700 cm -1 decays with a time constant of40 ps.
