This report reviews work on vibrational spectroscopy of N-donor ligand metal complexes from 2008–2013. The particular focus is on the examination of excited states using resonance Raman spectroscopy, transient resonance Raman spectroscopy and time-resolved infrared spectroscopy. The report describes some of the basic concepts around each technique and then highlights work from the review period that exemplifies the utility of each method. In addition tables are included that summarise the work using these methods over the review period.
