The He(I) photoelectron spectra of some organometallic compounds of general formula (CH3)3M-M′(CH3)3 (M M′ C, Si, Ge, and Sn) are presented and assigned by comparison with those of simple related molecules and with the aid of CNDO/2 calculations. The HOMO is highly localized at the central metal-metal bond, and its energy is linearly related to the M′-M+ ionic bond dissociation energy.
