Abstract

This review presents a highly selective summary of spectroelectrochemical methods used in the study of metal alkyne, acetylide, vinylidene and allenylidene complexes. The review is illustrated predominantly by the selected examples from the authors’ group that formed the basis of a lecture at the recent ISE Annual Meeting. Emphasis is placed on the use of spectroelectrochemical methods to study redox-induced ligand isomerisation reactions, and determination of molecular electronic structure, which complement the conventional tools available to the synthetic chemist for characterisation of molecular compounds. The role of computational studies in supporting the interpretation of spectroscopic data is also briefly discussed.
