Electron transfer (ET) from donor to acceptor is often mediated by nuclear-electronic (vibronic) interactions in molecular bridges. Using an ultrafast electronic-vibrational-vibrational pulse-sequence, we demonstrate how the outcome of light-induced ET can be radically altered by mode-specific infrared (IR) excitation of vibrations that are coupled to the(More)
The reactions of water with a number of iridium(III) complexes relevant to the mechanism for catalytic methanol carbonylation are reported. The iridium acetyl, [Ir(CO)2I3(COMe)](-), reacts with water under mild conditions to release CO2 and CH4, rather than the expected acetic acid. Isotopic labeling and kinetic experiments are consistent with a mechanism(More)

We present quantum dynamical calculations on the conformational changes of glycine in collisions with the He, Ne, and Ar rare-gas atoms. For two conformer interconversion processes (III-->I and IV-->I), we find that the probability of interconversion is dependent on several factors, including the energy of the collision, the angle at which the colliding(More)
Transient absorption and time resolved luminescence spectroscopy were used to study photophysical processes in the macrocycle-appended 1,8-naphthalimide compound H3L, and its Eu(III) and Gd(III) complexes Eu·L and Gd·L, in particular the naphthalimide-Eu(III) energy-transfer process. In all cases aggregation of the naphthalimide chromophores results in a(More)
Picosecond time-resolved infrared spectroscopy was used to elucidate early photochemical processes in the diazido complexes M(Cp*)(N3)2(PPh3), M = Rh (), Ir (), using 266 nm and 400 nm excitation in THF, CH2Cl2, MeCN and toluene solutions. The time-resolved data have been interpreted with the aid of DFT calculations on vibrational spectra of the singlet(More)
Stabilisation of the mixed-valence state in [Mo2(TiPB)3(HDOP)]2(+) (HTiPB = 2,4,6-triisopropylbenzoic acid, H2DOP = 3,6-dihydroxypyridazine) by electron transfer (ET) is related to the proton coordinate of the bridging ligands. Spectroelectrochemical studies suggest that ET is slower than 10(9) s(-1). The mechanism has been probed using DFT calculations,(More)
We report upon an analysis of the vibrational modes that couple and drive the state-to-state electronic transfer branching ratios in a model donor-bridge-acceptor system consisting of a phenothiazine-based donor linked to a naphthalene-monoimide acceptor via a platinum-acetylide bridging unit. Our analysis is based upon an iterative Lanczos search algorithm(More)
