Subpicosecond Infrared Spectroscopy: The Condensed Phase Photochemistry of Iron Carbonyls
The photochemistry of dinuclear transition metal carbonyls has been extensively studied in isolated matrices [1,2] and low temperature liquids [3,4] using conventional IR spectroscopic methods, and in ambient solution [5–8] using microsecond time-resolved IR techniques. While these studies have revealed long-lived photoproducts formed by visible and UV photolysis, they lack the time resolution necessary to address issues related to the primary events in the photodissociation of organometallic compounds.
