Periodic Report - HEXANE (Heavy Elements X-ray Absorption Spectroscopies Network)

Project ID: 230807
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE


This is the periodic report of the HEXANE project, which is funded under the European Commission (EC) Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). This project aims to develop a joint experimental and theoretical approach for a full characterisation and interpretation of the intramolecular interactions in the hexacyanometallates family of heavy elements. Three types of experiments were conducted to assess various states of X-ray absorption, and the electronic properties of certain molecular solids were investigated.

The results obtained show that no intervalence charge transfer was observed between the corresponding optical spectra of lanthanide compounds. However, an intense intervalence charge transfer band was noted in the studies of transition metals. This project has resulted in a semi-quantitative description of bond ionocovalency in compounds of series 2.
