We have shown that the radiation pattern for absorption to the lowest energy excited singlet state of s‐triazine corresponds to that of a mixed electric and magnetic dipole transition. This was done by demonstrating, for the first time with an organic, the classic procedure of obtaining absorption coefficients for different k, ε̂, and Ĥ for a uniaxial arrangement of molecules. We find the 30 014 cm^(−1) transition of s‐triazine to be 26% magnetic and 74% electric dipole, hence the state symmetry is ^1 E in the crystal field, and ^1 E″ in the free molecule (D_(3h) ).
