Fluorescence properties of pyrene (Py), benzo[ghi]perylene (BPe), coronene (Co), and ovalene (Ov) dissolved in <i>n</i>-butylammonium thiocyanate, <i>sec</i>-butylammonium thiocyanate, and dipropylammonium thiocyanate are reported. Solvent polarities of the thiocyanate salts are estimated from the fluorescence emission intensity ratios of bands I and III (i.e., Py = I/III) of the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon vibronic spectra. Calculated BPe, Co, and Ov values indicate that all three thiocyanate salts are comparable in polarity to cyclohexanone.
