Transient direct current photoconductivity measurements were performed on solutions of Pt(dpphen)-(ecda) in order to identify the nature of its luminescing states. The measurements reveal that the states are charge transfer in nature and that at high concentrations a reversible dimerization, or possibly higher-order aggregation, takes place in the ground state.
