A series of polynuclear complexes based on RuII, OsII, ReI and RhIII polypyridine moieties have been prepared in the context of intramolecular energy and electron transfer studies and of interfacial electron transfer with nanocrystalline TiO2. The polynuclear complexes allow for the occurrence of vectorial intramolecular energy and electron transfer and have been proven to be efficient sensitizers of the wide band-gap semiconductor. The performance of photoregenerative cells based on these systems and the dynamics of the excited state intramolecular processes and of the interfacial electron transfer processes are discussed.
