Photochemistry of Platinum Metal Compounds

The photoresponsive behaviour of co-ordination compounds and the nature of the excited states involved have given rise to a considerable volume of literature during the last few years. Much of this has been concerned with compounds of cobalt, chromium and other transition metals, but among these interesting results have been reported on certain complexes of platinum, palladium, iridium and rhodium. A comprehensive review by A. W. Adamson and his co-workers at the University of Southern California (Chem. Rev., 1968, 68, 541), provides a valuable collection of data in this field.
