Photoacoustic calorimetry and quantum yields of Mo(CO)(6) ligand exchange in linear alkanes: determination of volume of reaction, energetics, and kinetics of nucleophile displacement of alkane from Mo(CO)(5)(alkane).

Abstract

Photoacoustic calorimetry (PAC) and actinometry studies were used to determine the enthalpies and volumes of reaction for the production of a transient intermediate, Mo(CO)(5)-alkane, and for its subsequent reaction with tetrahydrofuran (THF). Both the enthalpy and the volume of reaction contribute to the photoacoustic signal and have been resolved by… (More)
