Abstract: X-ray K-absorption spectra of some structurally important, paramagnetic cobalt(II)-triphenylphosphine oxide and cobalt(II)-triphenylphosphine complexes.having tetrahedral geometry, have been studied. The edge and peak shifts for triphenylphosphine oxide complexes are greater than those for triphenylphosphine- complexes. The observed edge shifts have been discussed in terms of σ-donor and π-acceptor properties of the ligands. The tripehnylphosphine complexes show a small pre-edge peak on the low energy side of the main K-edge, which is assigned to 1s + 3d (quadrupole) transition. The main peaks of all these complexes are narrow and sharp which may be due to the transition of K-electrons into high density of normally unoccupied states with p-symmetry in the neighbourhood of cobalt atom. The average metal-ligand bond distances have also been calculated from the extended fine structure measurements.
