An experimental XAS and ab initio approach to describe the electronic and local structure of sodium nitroprussiate single crystals

Abstract : The electronic and local structural properties of single crystals in the ground state (GS) of the photo-switchable compound Na2[Fe(CN)5NO]•2H2O (sodium nitroprussiate, SNP) have been investigated by X-ray Absorption Fine Structure Spectroscopy (XAFS) and FEFF simulations. In SNP, the XANES (X-ray Absorption Near Edge Structure) pre-edge region presents three distinct peaks with different intensities depending on the crystal axis orientation with respect to the polarization direction of the X-ray beam. The peaks correspond to a combination of 1s to 4p and 1s to 3d transitions with possibly mixed dipole and quadrupole character. The EXAFS fitting reveals, as expected, a biased structure according to the relative position of the crystal with respect to the beam polarization and the fittings are in accordance to theoretical values. The best fitted model has a large contribution from multi-scattering paths, which clarifies the interpretation of the actual peak contributions on the Fourier Transformed signal.
