Double vs triple: How is the electronic coupling between the donor and acceptor affected by alkene vs alkyne bridges? To address this question the authors have elucidated the intrinsic optical properties of p-nitrophenolates by using state-of-the-art gas-phase spectroscopy (see picture) and excited-state calculations.
