Title: Outer-sphere effects on ligand-field excited-state dynamics: solvent dependence of high-spin to low-spin conversion in [Fe(bpy) 3 ] 2+

Abstract

Time-resolved spectroscopic measurements of ground-state recovery for [Fe(bpy) 3 ] 2+ reveal that the solvent can induce an outer-sphere reorganization energy effect on excited-state dynamics involving metal-centered ligand-field electronic states.
