Characterization of Mononuclear and Oligonuclear Transition Metal Complexes in Isolation

  • In this thesis, collision-induced dissociation (CID) studies serve to elucidate relative stabilities and to determine bond strengths within a given structure type of transition metal complexes. The infrared multi photon dissociation (IRMPD) spectroscopy combined with density functional theory (DFT) allow for structural analysis and provide insights into the coordination sphere of transition metal centers. The used combination of CID and IRMPD experiments is a powerful tool to obtain a detailed and comprehensive characterization and understanding of interactions between transition metals and organic ligands. The compounds’ spectrum comprises mono- or oligonuclear transition metal complexes containing iron, palladium, and ruthenium as well as lanthanide containing single molecule magnets (SMM). The presented investigations on the different transition metal complexes reveal manifold effects for each species leading to valuable results. A fundamental understanding of metal to ligand interactions is mandatory for the development of new and better organometallic complexes with catalytic, optical or magnetic properties.
