Abstract

The complex anion, [(NC)5FeIICN-PtIV(NH3)4-NC-FeII(CN)5]4-, is synthesized from the redox reaction of K3Fe(CN)6 and Pt(NH3)4(NO3)2 in aqueous solution. Irradiation of the intervalent (IT) absorption band of the complex effects a net two electron transfer, regenerating the molecules from which it was formed. The IT band energy can be modulated by changing the cyanometalate species employed or through the use of a noncoordinating solvent such as DMSO. The photochemistry of the polymeric "(-Fe-Pt-)n" cyanide-bridged complex is also discussed.
