Title

Chemiluminescence from osmium(ii) complexes with phenanthroline, diphosphine and diarsine ligands

Abstract

The reaction of various [Os(L)2(L')] complexes (where L and L' are phenanthroline, diphosphine or diarsine ligands) and organic reducing agents after chemical or electrochemical oxidation of the reactants produces an emission of light corresponding to MLCT transitions. In certain instances, the emission was greater than that of [Ru(bipy)3]2+, but the relative signals were dependent on many factors, including reagent concentration, mode of oxidation, reducing agent and the sensitivity of the photodetector over the wavelength range.
