Nanometer thin films of nonsublimable multinuclear transition metal complexes were deposited on Si by means of spin coating to enable photoelectron spectroscopy studies. In combination with density functional theory calculations, photoelectron spectroscopy is applied to gain insight into the electronic and magnetic properties of the complexes.
