Substitution kinetics of the pentacarbonylbis(trimethylsilyl)ethynetungsten(0) with triphenylbismuhine

Bayram, Ercan
The reaction between pentacarbonylbis(trimethylsilyl)ethynetungsten(0), W(CO)5(?2-btmse), and triphenylbismuthine, BiØ3, yields pentacarbonyltriphenylbismuthinetungsten(0), W(CO)5(BiØ3), as the sole product. The kinetics of the substitution of btmse by BiØ3 was studied by means of quantitative FT-IR Spectroscopy. The starting complex was prepared photochemically from hexacarbonyltungsten, W(CO)6, in the presence of excess btmse in n-hexane and identified by FT-IR and NMR Spectroscopies. The substitution reactions were performed in cyclohexane solutions at different concentrations of both leaving and entering ligand to observe the dependence of observed rate constant, kobs, on the concentration of entering and leaving ligands and also, at different temperatures to evaluate the activation enthalpy (?H?) and the activation entropy (?S?). The IR extinction coefficients for CO stretching were determined for both the starting complex W(CO)5(?2-btmse), and the product W(CO)5(BiØ3). Quantitative IR Spectroscopy does not show any significant reduction in the total amount of substance (material balance). Formation of W(CO)6 (in small amount) was attributed to the decomposition of the product, W(CO)5BiØ3. From the evaluation of kinetic data, a mechanism was proposed in which the rate determining step is the cleavage of btmse ligand from the starting complex, W(CO)5(?2-btmse) and the formation of solvated complex, W(CO)5(solvent). Thus, the reaction is essentially dissociative. The large positive value of activation entropy (?S?) and large value of activation enthalpy (?H?) are indicative of a dissociative mechanism.


Synthesis and characterization of tetracarbonyl(6-ferrocenyl-2.2'-bibyridine)tungsten(0) complex
Edinç, Pelin; Özkar, Saim; Department of Chemistry (2005)
In this study, a bidentate ligand, 6-ferrocenyl-2,2'-bipyridine, was prepared by the reaction of lithiated ferrocene with bipyridine. The ligand was identified by 1H, 13C- NMR and HMQC and UV-Vis spectroscopies. Then, bidentate molecule was reacted with pentacarbonylbis-(trimethylsilylethyne)tungsten(0). The ligand substitution reaction in CH2Cl2 yielded the new complex, tetracarbonyl(6-ferrocenyl-2,2'bipyridine)tungsten(0). The isolated and purified complex was fully characterized by elemental analysis, IR...
Tetracarbonyl(N,N̕-bis(ferrocenylmethlene) ethylenediamine) chromium(0), Cr(CO)4(bfeda): synthesis and characterization
Akyol, Ceyhun; Özkar, Saim; Department of Chemistry (2005)
N,N̕-bis(ferrocenylmethylene)ethylenediamine was prepared from the reaction of ferrocenecarboxaldehyde and ethylenediamine and characterized by IR, Raman, 1H and 13C-NMR spectroscopy. The electrochemical behaviour of this ligand was also studied for the first time by cyclic voltammetry. Diferrocenyl diimine ligand was used in the thermal substitution of 1,5-cyclooctadiene in Cr(CO)4(2:2-1,5-cyclooctadiene) at 38°C in toluene for two hours to form the tetracarbonyl[N,N̕-bis(ferrocenylmethylene)ethylenediamin...
Light mesons: pi, eta, and omega and exotic low mass meson production at intermediate energies in nucleon-nucleon scattering
Tatischeff, B; Yonnet, J; Rekalo, MP; Boivin, M; Comets, MP; Courtat, P; Gacougnolle, R; Le Bornec, Y; Loireleux, E; Reide, F; Willis, N (2000-11-01)
The reaction (p) over barp-->ppX was studied at three energies (T-p=1520, 1805, and 2100 MeV) and at several angles between 0 degrees and 17 degrees in the lab. The analyzing powers and differential cross sections of light meson production, X = pi, eta, and omega, were measured. The c.m. angular range varied between 0 degrees and 180 degrees where the incident energy combined with the experimental acceptance allow both forward and backward kinematical solutions. A theoretical analysis based on s-channel con...
Synthesis and characterization tetracarbonyl[n,n'-bis(ferrocenylmethylene ethylenediamine] molybdenum(0) complex
Koçak, Fatma Sanem; Özkar, Saim; Department of Chemistry (2005)
In this study a bidentate ligand containing two ferrocenyl moieties, N,N'-bis(ferrocenylmethylene)ethylenediamine, was prepared by condensation reaction of ferrocenecarboxyaldehyde and ethylenediamine on refluxing in benzene. The molecule was identified by IR, Raman, UV-Vis, 1H-, 13C-NMR spectroscopies. Then, this bidentate molecule was reacted with tetracarbonyl(bicyclo[2.1.1] hepta-2,5-diene)molybdenum(0). The ligand substitution reaction in toluene yielded the new complex, tetracarbonyl[N,Ń-bis(ferrocen...

Barış, Şehriban; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Department of Chemistry (2007)
This thesis presents synthesis and different reactions of alpha-keto-beta-hydroxyphosphonates. Toward this aim, the hydroxyl functionality of alpha-hydroxycarboxylic acids were protected with alkyl or acyl groups and then formation of acid chloride followed by the reaction with trialkylphosphite furnished protected alpha-keto-beta-hydroxyphosponates. Nucleophilic addition reactions were applied to these compounds to obtain quaternary alcohols with phosphonate functionality. The addition reactions were tried...
