|Abstract / Description:||In order to assess the sensitivity and complementarity of X-ray absorption and emission spectroscopies for determining changes in the metal ligation sphere, a systematic experimental and theoretical study of iron model complexes has been carried out A series of high spin ferrous complexes, in which the ligation sphere has been varied from a three coordinate complex, [(LFe)-Fe-tBu(SPh)] (1) (where L-tBu = bulky beta-diketiminate ligand; SPh = phenyl thiolate) to four coordinate complexes [(LFe)-Fe-tBu(SPh)(X)] (where X = (CNBu)-Bu-t (2); 1-methylimidazole (3); or N,N-dimethylformamide (DMF) (4)), has been investigated using a combination of Fe K-edge X-ray absorption (XAS) and K beta X-ray emission (XES) spectroscopies. The Fe K XAS pre-edge and edge of all four complexes are consistent with a high spin ferrous assignment, with the largest differences in the pre-edge intensities attributed to changes in covalency of the fourth coordination site The X-ray emission spectra show pronounced changes in the valence to core region (V2C) as the identity of the coordinated ligand is varied. The experimental results have been correlated to density functional theory (DFT) calculations, to understand key molecular orbital contributions to the observed absorption and emission features The calculations also have been extended to a series of hypothetical high spin iron complexes to understand the sensitivity of XAS and XES techniques to different ligand protonation states ([(LFeII)-Fe-tBu(SPh)(NHn)](3-n) (n = 3, 2, 1, 0)), metal oxidation states [(LFe)-Fe-tBu(SPh)(N)](n-) (n = 3, 2, 1), and changes in the ligand identity [(LFeIV)-Fe-tBu(SPh)(X)](n-) (X = C4-, N3-, O2-; n = 2, 1, 0). This study demonstrates that XAS pre-edge data have greater sensitivity to changes in oxidation state, while valence to core (V2C) XES data provide a more sensitive probe of ligand identity and protonation state. The combination of multiple X-ray spectroscopic methods with DFT results thus has the potential to provide for detailed characterization of complex inorganic systems in both chemical and biological catalysis.|
