Between red and yellow: evidence of intermediates in a vapochromic Pt(II) salt

Author affiliations

Abstract

[Pt(tpy)Cl]ClO4·H2O (1·H2O) changes from red to yellow upon dehydration due to increased Pt⋯Pt distances. Spectroscopic, diffraction, gravimetric and calorimetric data demonstrate the presence of intermediates during hydration and dehydration which signifies surprising mechanistic complexity in the vapochromic response.
