Electronic Structure Modulation in Cationic Boron Formazanate Complexes

Joe Gilroy The University of Western Ontario


The effect of charge, coordination number, and supporting ligands at boron in formazanate-based BN heterocycles is systematically explored. It is shown that the type and wavelength of the lowest-energy electronic excitation of these compounds can be modulated through structural variation at boron.
