By applying a molecular orbital perturbation approach, we calculate the formation rates for singlet and triplet molecular excitons associated with intermolecular charge-transfer processes. It is found that the interchain bond-charge correlation has a strong influence on the relative probabilities for generating singlet and triplet excitons. Most importantly, application of our approach to a model system for poly-(paraphenylenevinylene) shows that the ratio between the electroluminescence and photoluminescence quantum yields generally exceeds the 25% spin-degeneracy statistical limit.
