2 For coordination compounds, how does one measure… Magnitude of d-d splitting? Magnitude of charge transfer (CT) transitions? MO energy levels? Extent of M-L orbital overlap? Electronic environment (oxidation state, Z eff )?

3 For coordination compounds, how does one measure… Magnitude of d-d splitting? Magnitude of charge transfer (CT) transitions? MO energy levels? Extent of M-L orbital overlap? Electronic environment (oxidation state, Z eff )? X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS)can be used to determine all of these things simultaneously!

4 What is XAS? X-ray High energy photons eject core e - s (1s, 2s, etc.) Absorption Spectroscopy Scan over a spectrum, measure absorbance of photons that eject e - s or fluorescence of photons emitted when valence e - s relax into holes 1s h h 3d 4p Elemental Fe:

6 X-rays emerge from the source: A particle accelerator called a synchrotron Dave, an undergraduate student from Willamette University, collects data at the Advanced Light Source, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

10 Origin of each part of an X-ray absorption spectrum Pre-edge, K-edge (XANES), and EXAFS regions TransmissionAbsorption/fluorescence Thank you to Chris Kim, Chapman U., for providing most of this slide!

11 Some definitions… XANES: X-ray absorption near-edge structure is the region of the XAS spectrum leading up to and at the K-edge of an element. K-edge: The energy required to eject a 1s electron (akin to ionization energy, but for core electrons). Pre-edge features: Peaks in the XANES spectrum corresponding to electronic transitions from core electrons to bound states that occur slightly below the K-edge energy.

12 Features of XAS Example: Ru(bpy) 3 2+

13 Element Specific: Edges energies well resolved for different elements

14 Element Specific Ru

15 Element Specific N

16 C

17 Oxidation State: K-edge energies shift when an element is oxidized or reduced or Z eff changes

18 Bond lengths: Can be determined via EXAFS (another type of XAS experiment not discussed here)

19 Identify Ligand: Useful for bioinorganic systems or when identity of ligand is ambiguous

20 Orbital mixing Extent of M-L overlap can be determined from spectral features in the pre-edge region

21 Coordination number/symmetry: Can be determined from XANES and EXAFS

22 In situ experiments are possible: Extremely useful for dilute samples such as probing a metal catalytic site in an enzyme; Often non-destructive
