    Abstract

    A series of ruthenium (II) complex salts were studied using electroabsorption spectroscopy. It was found that the N-arylation enhancement of β0 was most significant in the 4,4′-bipyridinium-based complexes. It was concluded that increases in the β0 were due to the decreases in Emax and increases in both μ12 and δμ12.
