Creutz-Taube Complex

Creutz-Taube Complex

The Creutz-Taube ion is the metal complex with the formula 2(C4H4N2)5+. This cationic species has been heavily studied in an effort to understand the intimate details of inner sphere electron transfer, that is, how electrons move from one metal complex to another. The ion is named after Carol Creutz, who first prepared the complex, and her thesis advisor Henry Taube, who received a Nobel Prize in Chemistry for this and related discoveries on electron-transfer.
