An Assessment of the Causes of the “ Cesium Effect ”


Cesium alkanoates (chiefly the propionate) have been investigated for their solubility, nucleophilic reactivity, and degree of ion pairing in dimethylformamide (DMF) and, in some cases, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) solutions. 133Cs NMR has been used to establish the degree of ion pairing. From the data obtained it is concluded that the cesium ion is virtually… (More)
