The electronic structures of bis(pentafluorophenyl)zinc (I) and dichloro(N,N,N',N'-tetramethylethylenediamine)zinc(II) (II) have been investigated by HeI and HeII UV photoelectron spectroscopy (UPS) and DFT/OVGF calculations. We discuss the properties of Zn-aryl and Zn-N bonds on the basis of spectroscopic evidence i.e. the nature of metal-ligand bonding. Our study is the first reported one on the photoelectron spectra of zinc-aryl complex.
