ESR Spectra of Cupric Complexes with Substituted Pyridines
It has been shown, that the ESR spectra of transition metal complexes that exhibit a resolved ligand hyperfinestructure (hfs), give particularly useful information to perform semiempirical LCAO -MO calculations of such complexes (1, 2). The ESR data give a good measure of the degree of delocalisation of the unpaired electrons in the complex. MAKI and McGARVEY (3) have given a theory of the ESR spectra of copper(II) complexes, and they have shown, that the theory gives reasonable values for the bonding parameters of these complexes.
