In-depth exploration of the photophysics of a trinuclear palladium complex

Author affiliations

Abstract

A detailed theoretical and spectroscopic study on the electronically excited states of a trinuclear palladium complex is presented both in the gas phase and solution. The application of DFT and TDDFT methods as well as a variety of spectroscopic methods to the chosen complex [Pd3{Si(mtMe)3}2] (1, mtMe = methimazole) leads to the first detailed analysis of the photophysics of a symmetric trinuclear complex. In combination with the calculations, energies, structures and lifetimes of the excited electronic states (with an 3A1 state as the lowest one) are characterized by applying the resonant-2-photon-ionization method in a molecular beam experiment as well as luminescence, time-correlated single photon counting and excited state femtosecond absorption spectroscopy in solution. These investigations are of fundamental interest to analyze photophysical properties of metal containing complexes on a molecular level.
