In the present work we report some hitherto unnoticed features in the steady state and time resolved measurements of isoquinoline in water and trifluoroethanol (TFE). Absorption spectra reveal that in water, neutrals as well cationic species are present. Emission spectrum shows structured features at shorter wavelengths accompanied with a broad band around 375 nm, which correspond to neutrals and cations respectively. However, excitation spectra and time resolved data indicate that protonation does not take place in the excited state in water. On the contrary in stronger hydrogen bonding solvent TFE, continuous distribution of decay components is observed. This is ascribed to neutral and cation like species present in the ground as well as in the excited state. The difference in the results is explained in terms of different potential energy surfaces for water and TFE in the excited state.
