The results of this analysis show that the CO modes make a small contribution to the overall nonradiative decay rate. The greater degree of complex solvent interactions, as evidenced by large Delta upsilon(1/2) values, is the major factor in the large values of k(m), relative to non-carbonyl-containing complexes.
