High energy photoelectron spectroscopy of transition metal complexes. Part 2.Metallocenes Academic Article uri icon


  • Metal and core electron binding energies of the metallocenes of the first row transition metals are reported and discussed with the aid of approximate molecular orbital calculations. In all cases it is found that the metal atom is positively charged. The measured splitting of the metal 3s photoelectron peaks is interpreted in terms of spin delocalization in these molecules.
