Square-planar Pt(II) complexes of the bis(mesitylimino)acenaphthene (mesBIAN) ligand are emissive from a MMLL'CT excited state in a dichloromethane solution at room temperature. Investigation of the nature of the frontier orbitals in these near-IR emitters by a combination of emission spectroscopy, electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy, and density functional theory calculations suggests that emission is enabled by the presence of low-lying ligand π* orbitals on the mesBIAN.
