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.
