Abstract

The main group metal complexes SnI3- , PbI3- , SbI4- and BiI4- display long-wavelength absorption bands which are assigned to sp/ LMCT transitions. The photochemistry of these complexes is determined by the CT character of their lowest-energy excited state. The photolysis in acetonitrile leads to a photoredox decomposition which yields I3- and the elemental metals as final products. The results of the continuous photolysis are supplemented by observations on the flash photolysis of PbI3-.
