Electronic Spectra and Photochemistry of Methyl Platinum(IV) Complexes.
Coordination Chemistry Reviews 111, pp. 15-25.
The absorption and emission spectra as well as the photochemistry of the platinum(IV) methyl complexes [Pt(CH3)3I]4 and [Pt(bipy) (CH3)3I] are reported and discussed. The compounds show photoemission from ligand field and intraligand excited states, respectively, and undergo reductive eliminations to platinum(II) from ligand to metal charge transfer states which occur at higher energies.
