The complexes are diamagnetic and exhibit only one ligand-to-metal charge transfer (LMCT) transition near 490 nm in addition to other two intra-ligand transitions around 410 and 330 nm. The complexes have low V(V)/V(IV) reduction potentials in the region —0.40 V vs SCE leading to the stabilisation of pentavalent state.
