Abstract

The electronic structures of the complex dimer, 5.7.7.12.14.14-hexamethyl-l,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetra-decanenickel(II)-y-diazido-5,7,7,12,14,14-hexamethyl-1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradecanenickel(II) ion, ([(Ni(tet-b)N3)2]^+), and the diazido complex, diazido-5.7.7.12.14.14-hexamethyl-l,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetrade-canenickel (II), ( [Ni( tet-a) (Ng^] ), have been studied. Spectroscopic and crystal field data of the two azido complexes are presented. Energies of the d-d transition and charge transfer bands were also determined. An attempt to show the generation of nitrene intermediate by the photolysis of [(Ni(tet-b)N3)2]^+ ion was unsuccessful.
