Nitrite ligands


 

(c) Nitrite ligands

Nitrite, can bind to the metal in a variety of different ways, and IR spectroscopy can be used to
discriminate between them.


   

nitrito

vN=O 1485-1400 cm-1

vCN 1110-1050 cm-1

 

nitro

vN=O 1470-1370 cm-1

vCN 1340-1320 cm-1

isomerises on standing, and can follow the kinetics and equilibria by monitoring decrease of 1050 cm-1 band.
