Abstract

Photolysis of CpW(CO)3Me (1) in n-heptane generates mostly the solvated intermediate CpW(CO)2Me…n-heptane (2), detected by time-resolved infrared spectroscopy (TRIR). The reactions of 2 with CO, PPh3, and N2 have been studied and appropriate second-order rate constants obtained. A small amount of the radical CpW(CO)3• (5) is also generated on photolysis of 1 and can be characterized by the photolysis of [CpW(CO)3]2 (6).
