Wavelength-selective photoisomerisation of nitric oxide and nitrite in a rhodium complex

Author affiliations

Abstract

Photoinduced linkage isomers (PLIs) of NO and NO2 are selectively generated by an appropriate choice of irradiation wavelength at low temperature within the same molecular complex [Rh(NO)(NO2)2(But2PH)2]. The structures of the PLIs are characterised by photocrystallography and the corresponding vibrational changes by infrared spectroscopy. Using red light about 37% of the κON isonitrosyl PLI can be produced while irradiation with blue light produces about 80% of the (O,O′) chelating NO2 isomer. Upon heating the NO2 PLI undergoes several structural transformations, which are characterised by infrared spectroscopy.
