    • Abstract


      Intervalence charge transfer properties were studied for a set of mixed valence complexes incorporating Ru(III) and Fe(II)-centres linked by various saturated and unsaturated bridging ligands (BL). Studies reveal that degree of ground state electronic interaction and coupling between Ru(III) and Fe(II)-centrescanbe attenuated by changing the nature of the bridging ligand. Further, inclusion of the bridging ligand with interrupted π-electron system in a β-CD cavity initiate an optical electron transfer from Fe(II) to Ru(III) which is otherwise not observed.
