Intervalence excitations of a mixed-valence salt: NMR and optical absorption in molten InCl2

Journal Article

We report115 In nuclear relaxation rates for molten InCl2 and visible-near-infrared absorption spectra for molten InCl2 and In2Cl3. A weak band at 2.1 eV in InCl2 is attributed to the intervalence transfer excitation In+ →- In3+. The intensity of the intervalence band is correlated with the lifetime of the excited, magnetic ion In2+ measured by NMR. © 1983.
