The existing information on the energy exchanges in molecular liquids is briefly reviewed. Main experimental methods are enumerated, and a phenomenological description of the observed material is given. The effects of various competing processes such as bond scission, conformational changes, twist-induced charge transfer, etc, are commented. Theoretical methods employed is this field, as well as difficulties inherent to them, are sketchily presented at the end.
