## Abstract

Using a time-dependent model many-body formulation, we follow the electron–hole recombination between a pair of oppositely charged polyene chains and triplet–triplet (T–T) scattering in $\pi$-conjugated systems. Electron correlations reduce the overall yields and also lead to large differences between the singlet and triplet yields. External electric field has a strong influence on the recombination products. The fraction of singlet yield, η, increases with the chain length. Heteroatoms also change this ratio significantly, as has been observed experimentally. The outcome of the triplet–triplet scattering is also significantly affected by electron correlations.
