In our group the molecular charge transfer (CT) complexes including photoreactive species such as Ag+, [Ru(bpy)3]2+, and methyl viologen have been widely examined to elucidate their possibility as new types of photoconductors. It is anticipated that utilizing the photoreactive species as a trigger of CT, the counter species are doped with carriers under irradiation to exhibit unusually large photoconductivity. The π-electron-donor molecules with extended molecular orbitals are suitable for such counter species, because they are redox-active and aggregate in the solid state to form conduction pathways. NMQ[Ni(dmit)2] (NMQ=N-methyl quinolinium, dmit=1, 3-dithiol-4, 5-dithiolate anion) functions as a diamagnetic insulator with an activation energy, Ea(dark), of 0.20 eV. However, at 300 K it exhibits ~40 times higher conductivity under UV irradiation (375+5 nm, 15.7 mWcm-2) (σUV) than it does under dark conditions (σdark). The ratio σUV/σdark rapidly increases with decreasing temperature and reaches ~880 at 200 K. From the temperature dependence of σUV the activation energy under irradiation, Ea (UV), is 0.12 eV. These observations cannot be explained as the result of sample heating during UV irradiation. Rather, X-ray photoelectron spectra of sulfur and nitrogen atoms, the calculated band structure and UV-Vis spectra of the salt all indicate that CT takes place from Ni(dmit)2 to NMQ upon exposure to UV light. Owing to the redox activity of both molecular species, the CT transition is expected to provide a larger number of carriers than are usually associated with HOMO-LUMO interband transitions, thus accounting for the unusually large photoconductivity of NMQ[Ni(dmit)2].
