In this contribution, we investigate by means of correlated quantum-chemical calculations the influence of intermolecular interactions on the absorption and emission properties of conjugated chains. Various strategies are suggested to avoid a substantial decrease in fluorescence quantum yield in condensed media. Finally, the reliability of our theoretical approach is validated by showing the remarkable agreement obtained between the experimental data and the calculated optical properties of clusters formed by sexithienyl molecules.
