AbstractTwo photoprimary processes, (1) the metalmetal bond cleavage to give M(CO)5 and (2) CO dissociation without metalmetal bond cleavage to give coordinately unsaturated dimetallic species, M2(CO)g, are verified by the laser flash photolysis of M2(CO)10 (MMn, Re). The nature of the new species is discussed from the excitation wavelength effect and the quenching experiments with alkyl cyanides for MMn, and CO and CCl4 for MMn, Re. Photoreaction of Mn2(CO)g is investigated by nanosecond time-resolved double-flash method.
