    • Abstract


      Carboxylatopentaamminecobalt(III) complexes were prepared and characterized. These cobalt(III) complexes were used to study the electron transfer mechanism involved in the photoredox system Ru(bpy)32+-cobalt(III). The study shows that the electron transfer occurs from the excited state Ru(bpy)32+ to cobalt(III) complex through the intermedicy of the ligands.
