Abstract

UV photolysis of [cpV(CO)4] (cp = η5-C 5H5) and H2 provides IR evidence for the formation of [cpV(CO)32-H2)] both in n-heptane solution at 25°C and in liquid xenon solution at -78°C, where the ν(H-H) IR band of co-ordinated dihydrogen (and its HD isotopomer) can be observed; time-resolved IR (TRIR) studies provide information about the reactivity of these species at room temperature.
