Paper Abstract

Photoisomerization from cis-2 [Ru(OAc)(2cqn)2NO] (H2cqn=2-chloro-8-quinolinol) to cis-1 isomer was studied quantitatively and the effect of wavelength on isomerization was investigated. The main absorption band in UV-Vis region for cis-1 and cis-2 isomer was observed from 350 nm to 500 nm, and the kinetic study showed that the photoisomerization from cis-2 to cis-1 isomer was first-order and the rate constant (k) is 0.00022 (s-1) at 420 nm, 0.00018 (s-1) at 475 nm, 0.00011 (s-1) at 550 nm, respectively. Density functional theory (DFT) calculation suggested that the electronic transition from a ligand based orbital to an antibonding overlap of the Ru(d) and π* NO(p) orbitals control the photo induced reactivity of [Ru(OAc)(2cqn)2NO] complexes. The study provides basic information to design the molecular optical switches and advance optoelectronic materials based on nitrosylruthenium(II) complexes.
