Abstract:

A comprehensive program of synthesis, chemical characterization and optical investigation of complexes of nd6 configuration possessing charge-transfer CT excited states was carried out. Approximately sixty molecules of RuII and OsII were examined, a dozen of IrIII and six of PtIV. Absorption spectra 300 and 77 K, luminescence spectra 77 - 1.5 K and temperature dependent decay times, quantum yields and emission spectra were examined. Several systems were subjected to intense magnetic fields at low temperatures. Several new luminescent systems useful for photochemical energy donors were discovered. The project carried the laboratory significantly further toward its stated goal of defining the principles by which new substances with potential value as media for electrooptical devices can be designed and synthesized in the laboratory.
