Abstract

Caught in the light: The fulvalene diruthenium complex shown on the left side of the picture captures sun light, causing initial Ru-Ru bond rupture to furnish a long-lived triplet biradical of syn configuration. This species requires thermal activation to reach a crossing point (middle) into the singlet manifold on route to its thermal storage isomer on the right through the anti biradical.
