Anhydrous Chromium ( III ) Carboxylates : Reactions of Cr 0 3 with Carboxylic Acid Anhydrides

There have been very few reports in literature on anhydrous chromium(III) carboxylates [1, 2]. The preparation of Cr(OOCCH3)3 was first reported in 1911 [3] but very little information is available on the nature of this compound. Solvolysis of OCI3 in anhydrous carboxylic acids gives basic trinuclear chromium (III) carboxylates [4-6]. In this paper we… CONTINUE READING
