Abstract: Ru L-2,L-3 edge x-ray absorption near-edge spectroscopy spectra of four compounds [Ru(SO2)(NH3)(4)X]Y (X = water, Y = (+/-)-camphorsulfonate(2); X = water, Y = tosylate(2); X = isonicotinamide, Y = tosylate(2); X = pyridine, Y = triflate(2)) are reported before and after optical excitation, which causes photoinduced linkage isomerism of the SO2 ligand. Principal component analysis reveals consistent changes in the spectra upon photoisomerization, suggesting a partial oxidation of the Ru ion. These results demonstrate that x-ray absorption near-edge spectroscopy is an effective means of probing photoinduced linkage isomerism.
