Electron-Transfer Reactions of Re(CO)(5): Atom-Transfer-Concerted Mechanism vs Bimetallic Intermediate Formation.


Flash photochemically generated Re(CO)(5) reacts with halide complexes, Cu(Me(4)[14]-1,3,8,10-tetraeneN(4))X(+), Cu(Me(2)pyo[14]trieneN(4))X(+), and Ni(Me(2)pyo[14]trieneN(4))X(+) (X = Cl, Br, I) and ion pairs, [Co(bipy)(3)(3+), X(-)]. The rate constants for the electron transfers have values, k approximately 10(9) M(-1) s(-1), close to expectations for… (More)
