The photo-deactivation mechanism of the MNc(OBu)8 (M = Co, Ni, Cu) series of complexes is reviewed, with special emphasis on the role played by the central metal. Ultra-fast transient absorption experiments and Density Functional Theory and time-dependent Density Functional Theory calculations consistently show that the central metal modifies the photo-deactivation mechanism of the investigated complexes by inducing substantial changes in the nature and energy of the excited states lying between the photo-generated state and the ground state.

Abstract

The photo-deactivation mechanism of the MNc(OBu)8 (M = Co, Ni, Cu) series of complexes is reviewed, with special emphasis on the role played by the central metal. Ultra-fast transient absorption experiments and Density Functional Theory and time-dependent Density Functional Theory calculations consistently show that the central metal modifies the photo-deactivation mechanism of the investigated complexes by inducing substantial changes in the nature and energy of the excited states lying between the photo-generated state and the ground state.
