The electronic structure of mono-, hexa-, and nonanuclear cobalt trimethylacetate complexes was studied by XPS. The Co3s- and Co3p X-ray photoelectron spectra of the complexes were recorded. The Co3p spectrum of bivalent cobalt was calculated in the isolated-ion intermediate-coupling approximation. Spectrum analysis showed that the [Co(N-Phobsqdi)2(eta'-N-Ph-opda)(OOCCMe(3))] complex is a strong-field complex with Co(III) in the diamagnetic state; the [Co(dipy)(2)(OOCCMe(3))(2)], [Co(dipyam)(OOCCMe(3))(2)], and [Co(9)(mu(3)-OH)(6)(mu-OOCCMe(3))(12)(OCMe(2))(4)] are high-spin weak-field Co(II) complexes; and the [Co(6)(mu(4)-O)(2)(OOCCMe(3))(10)(THF)(4)] complex contains both the Co(II) and Co(III) atoms. The energy position of major Co3s- and Co3p spectral maxima were found to be sensitive to the nature of the nearest environment of cobalt atoms. The data correlate well with X-ray crystallographic data.
