Abstract

Halogen photoelimination is a critical step in HX-splitting photocatalysis. Herein, we report the photoreduction of a pair of valence-isomeric dirhodium phosphazane complexes, and suggest that a common intermediate is accessed in the photochemistry of both mixed-valent and valence-symmetric complexes. The results of these investigations suggest that halogen photoelimination proceeds by two sequential photochemical reactions: ligand dissociation followed by subsequent halogen elimination. © 2013 Royal Society of Chemistry.
