Energy and electron transfer
Coordination Chemistry for Light-harvestingInorganic coordination compounds have the potential to be used as multichromophore energy-harvesters and act as conduits for electron transfer. We investigate fundamental questions on the mechanism of energy delocalization/localization to advance a basic understanding of photoinduced electron transfer and its use as an initiation step into photoinduced catalysis. We focus on ruthenium based monomers, Ru-M’ dimers and Ru-M-M” trimers with selective ligands that allow the modulation of the excited state dynamics.
