Chapter 1 - Introduction In this Chapter brief introductions to both excited states and time-resolved spectroscopy are provided. The majority of the work described in this Thesis has utilised time-resolved infrared (TRIR) spectroscopy on an ultrafast time-scale, and as such, the details of this approach are described. Chapter 2 - Utilising TRIR spectroscopy to probe the photophysics of Re and Ru dppz complexes The photophysics of several Re and Ru complexes containing the diimine ligand dppz have been investigated using ps and ns TRIR, in the v(CO) and 1600-1300 cm-I spectral regions. From the spectra in the < 1600 cm-I region it has been possible to differentiate between the types of excited states formed following photolysis for both previously assigned and novel complexes.
