Distortion of the Unit Cell of Platinum(II) Complexes under Light Irradiation
The shift of X-ray powder pattern of Platinum(II) complexes was observed under light irradiation by using X-ray powder diffractometer. The peaks were returned to the original one when the irradiation of light was cut off. The observed X-ray powder patterns show that the unit cell of [Pt(acac)<SUB>2</SUB>] is expanded under light irradiation, however, that of [Bu<SUB>4</SUB>N]<SUB>4</SUB>[Pt<SUB>2</SUB>(pop)<SUB>4</SUB>] (pop<SUP>2−</SUP>=P<SUB>2</SUB>O<SUB>5</SUB>H<SUB>2</SUB><SUP>2−</SUP>) is contracted.
