Abstract

The absorption and emission spectra as well as the photochemistry of mercury and various mercury compounds in solution are reviewed. Special attention is paid to atomic mercury, the clusters Hg2+ 2, Hg2+ 3, Hg4+ 3, and a variety of Hg(II) complexes of the type HgX2, HgX- 3 and HgX2- 4 with X = halide or organometallic fragment.
