Quasi-one-dimensional halogen-bridged complexes of Ni, Pd and Pt have been attracting much attention because they show very interesting chemical and physical properties such as intense inter-valence charge transfer bands, progressive overtones of resonance Raman spectra, luminescence spectra with large Stokes-shifts, mid-gap absorptions attributable to soliton and polaron. Recently, we have found the largest third-order optical nonlinearity in [NiIII(chxn)2Br]Br2 with the strong electron-correlation (~10-4 esu). Generally speaking, the Pd complexes form the Pd(II)-Pd(IV) mixed-valence states, where the bridging halogens are displaced from the midpoints between neighboring two Pd atoms along the chain, due to the electron-phonon interaction, while the Ni complexes forms the Ni(III) Mott-Hubbard states, where the bridging halogens are located at midpoints between the neighboring two Ni atoms along the chain, due to the strong electron-correlation. Recently, Pd(en)2Br(C5-Y)2 with sulfonic acid counter-ions of the long alkyl chain shows the phase transition between the Pd(II)-Pd(IV) mixed-valence state and Pd(III) Mott-Hubbard state around 205K. The Pd compounds with sulfonic acid of 9 and 12 alkyl chains take the Pd(III) states even at room temperature for the first time. Pd(cptn)2Br3 show the charge fluctuation and charge separation between Pd(III) state and Pd(II)-Pd(IV) mixed-valence state. Finally, I will talk about their devices composed of the Ni-Pd hetero-junctions.
