The diverse structures and rich electrochemical response of polynuclear complexes have made them attractive objects with which to study bridge-mediated electronic interactions. In this review, the role of polymetallic systems as both electro-active sites (electrophores) in {cluster}–bridge–{cluster} systems, and bridging elements in {M}–{cluster}–{M} structures (M = organometallic fragment) has been reviewed. Methods for the characterisation of bridge-mediated charge transfer processes are highlighted, and where possible mechanisms of interaction are identified in specific systems.
