The spectra of a series of Cr(III)alkyl complexes, (H2O)5CrIIICR1R2R3, were reinvestigated. In addition to the reported three typical absorption bands a new strong band in the 210-260 nm region is detected for most of the complexes studied. The proposed assignments for the two LMCT transitions give a satisfactory explanation to the effect of the substituents Ri.
