Application of the Mössbauer-Effect in Coordination Chemistry
While nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy is quite common today in most chemical laboratories, Mössbauer spectroscopy is not developed beyond the early stages as far as its application in chemistry is concerned; for reviews see e. g. (1–3). Both methods are based on physical phenomena of the atomic nuclei and can serve to elucidate chemical bond characteristics of the atoms. Especially questions concerning oxidation number, coordination number and the symmetry of the environment of the atom as well as chemical bond types may be answered.
