Photophysical properties of MM quadruply bonded complexes (M = Mo, W) supported by carboxylate ligands: charge delocalization and dynamics in S1 and T1 states.


Quadruply bonded dinuclear metal complexes of molybdenum and tungsten have the MM configuration σ(2)π(4)δ(2) and a considerable degree of attention has been devoted to studies of the δ → δ(*) transition. For compounds of the type M(2)(O(2)CR)(4), the CO(2) π(*) orbitals introduce a M(2) δ to ligand π(*) transition, a (1)MLCT absorption which may be lower in… (More)
