    The excited-state mono- and diproton transfer has been investigated in the S1 state RI-CC2 and TDDFT methods. These calculations show that the concerted diproton transfer in S1 proceeds along a ridge thus making this process unlikely. On-the-fly dynamics simulations performed at the RI-CC2 level confirm this picture. The present results shed new light on the interpretation of the experimental results. The simulations show that what has been experimentally determined as concerted transfer is in fact a combination of two sequential proton transfers separated by a small delay below the present experimental resolution. Both the forward and reverse reactions of a mono-/diketo equilibrium were found within the 300 fs period. Environmental effects will lead to a substantial cooling of the initially hot molecule and a concomitant decrease in the monoketo/diketo conversion rates, which will result in the experimentally observed overall time scale of 10 ps for the second proton transfer step.
