Polarized Crystal Spectra of Some Nickel(II)Cyanide Complexes

Conference paper


In order to settle some questions as to the bonding in square -planar nickel complexes the following compounds were investigated:
which are isomorphous having triclinic symmetry,
$$CaNi{\left( {CN} \right)_4}.5{H_2}O$$
which is orthorhombic and
$$SrNi{\left( {CN} \right)_4}.5{H_2}O$$
both being monoclinic. The polarized spectra were measured with the light parallel and perpendicular to the c-axis; this axis being nearly, but not quite perpendicular to the planes of the nickel cyanide complexes. The spectra were measured both at room tem¬perature and at liquid nitrogen temperature.
