    The electronic structure of SbCl5L complexes has been analyzed on the basis of the fluorescence spectra of the sulfur and chlorine atoms as well as quantum chemical XαDV and PM3 calculations. The results have been compared with the corresponding data for SnCl4L2 and TiCl4L2 complexes. An increase in electron density on the chlorine atoms accompanied by a decrease on the central metal atom has been observed for the complexes arranged according to their stability. The arrangement of Sn, Sb, and Ti complexes with dimethyl sulfide according to their increasing stability is in disagreement with the order of the complexes with respect to electron density on the sulfur atom.
