Directly observed halocarbene-halocarbanion equilibration.

Abstract

Equilibria between phenylhalocarbenes, halide ions, and phenyldihalomethide carbanions have been spectroscopically characterized and computationally investigated for the halogens Cl and Br. Equilibrium constants, forward and reverse rate constants, and associated thermodynamic parameters are reported.
