Abstract

The electronic structure of the 1-D Ni complexes, [Ni(chxn)2X]X2 (X=Br, Cl) is studied together with the discrete Ni complexes, [NiX2([14]aneN4)]ClO4 (X=Br, Cl), using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and Auger electron spectroscopy (AES). An analysis using a simple X-Ni-X trimer model on the Ni 2p XP spectra yields quantitative estimates for the charge transfer (CT) energy Δ and the transfer energy T. An analysis on the Ni LVV Auger spectra indicates that the average on-site Coulomb energy U in these Ni complexes is about 5 eV. The obtained results demonstrate that the 1-D Ni complexes are CT insulators.
