Supramolecular photochemistry concerns the photochemical behavior of adducts (supramolecules), e.g., of a transition metal complex (as guest) and a ligand (as host) which is coordinated in the second sphere. The interaction between the title compounds manifests itself, inter alia, in novel luminescent properties. One aim of the present studies is the control of these properties. (Figure Presented.)
