Formation of ionic transition-metal carbonyl cluster fragments by ion-molecule reactions. 3. The heteronuclear systems Academic Article uri icon


  • The ion-molecule reaction chemistry of the Co(CO)3(NO)/Ni(CO)4, Co(CO)3(NO)/Fe(CO)5, and Ni(CO)4/Fe(CO)5heteronuclear systems is presented. the relative reaction rate and cluster valence electron deficiency of the ionic cluster fragments are used to estimate the bond order of the ionic cluster fragments. the coordination unsaturation of the Co(CO)3(NO)/Ni(CO)4system is very similar to the coordination unsaturation of the ionic cluster fragments found in the homonuclear Cr(CO)6, Fe(CO)5, Co(CO)3(NO), and Ni(CO)4systems. the ionic cluster fragments formed in the Co(CO)3(NO)/Fe(CO)5and Ni(CO)4/Fe(CO)5systems seem to follow bonding patterns found in heterometallic systems containing Fe(CO)42-. © 1987, American Chemical Society.
