Abstract

The He(Iα) and He(IIα) photoelectron spectra of the M(C6H5)4 series of molecules (M = C, Si, Ge, Sn, Pb) have been recorded and analysed on the basis of correlations with the known electronic structures of corresponding MH4 hydrides and of benzene. Extended Hückel MO calculations were also performed for all the molecules in the series. The photoelectron spectra of the M(C6H5)4 molecules all bear a strong resemblance to the benzene spectrum, suggesting that there are only weak interactions between the phenyl ligands.
