Axial ligand substitution reaction kinetics of pyrimidine-2-thionato bridged binuclear platinum(iii) complexes

Göy, Aytunç
The kinetics of the ligand substitution reactions, which is represented by the equation, [Pt2(C4H3N2S)4X2] + 2Y- Pt2(C4H3N2S)4Y2 + 2X- where X- = Cl-, Br-, I- and Y- = Cl-, Br-, I- are studied in acetonitrile in the presence of excess Y- ion concentrations, under constant ionic strength. All reactions are reversible. The rate of the above reaction is dependent on binuclear complex and entering ligand concentrations. Thus general rate equation can be written as Rate = k [Y-]a[Pt2(C4H3N2S)4X2]b The reaction rates are first order with respect to the substrate complex (b=1). The experimentally determined values of the order of the reaction with repect to entering ligand, “a”, are 0.96±0.057 (X=I-, Y=Cl-), -0.49±0.037 (X=Cl-, Y=I-), 0.28±0.023 (X=I-, Y=Br-), 0.48±0.044 (X=Br-, Y=I-), 0.53±0.042 (X=Br-, Y=Cl-), and -0.21±0.014 (X=Cl-, Y=Br-). The rate constants are 12.1±2.05 M-1s-1 (X=I-, Y=Cl-), (5.7±1.6)x10-3 M1/2s-1 (X=Cl-, Y=I-), 0.3±0.27 M-0.3s-1 (X=I-, Y=Br-), 0.53±0.11 M-1/2s-1 (X=Br-, Y=I-), 1.74±0.16 M-1/2s-1 (X=Br-, Y=Cl-), and 1.71±0.37x10-2 M0.2s-1 (X=Cl-, Y=Br-). To obtain information about the energetics of the reactions, the temperature dependence of the rate constants is determined and the activation parameters ΔH* and ΔS* are calculated. The values ΔS* are negative and, in the range of -81 and -236 J K-1 mol-1. These results support an associative-interchange, Ia, mechanism. All data obtained in this work are used to propose a mechanism which will be consistent with the experimentally determined rate law.


Synthesis and characterization of ruthenium(0) metal nanoparticles as catalyst in the hydrolysis of sodium borohydride
Zahmakıran, Mehmet; Özkar, Saim; Department of Chemistry (2005)
Sodium borohydride is stable in alkaline solution, however, it hydrolyses and generates hydrogen gas in the presence of suitable catalyst. By this way hydrogen can be generated safely for the fuel cells. All of the catalyst having been used in the hydrolysis of sodium borohydride, with one exception, are heterogeneous. The limited surface area of the heterogeneous and therefore, have limited activity because of the surface area. Thus, the use of metal nanoclusters as catalyst with large surface area is expe...
Axial water substitution kinetics of sulphato- and hydrogenphosphato-bridged binuclear platinum(III) complexes
Camadanli, S; Deveci, N; Gokagac, G; Isci, H (Elsevier BV, 2003-07-22)
The kinetics of the axial water substitution reactions for [Pt-2(B-B)(4)(H2O)(2)](2-) (B-B = SO42-, HpO(4)(2-)) with Cl-, Br- and SCN- are reported in acidic aqueous solution. With a large excess of entering ligand and hydrogen ion, only the disubstituted product complex was formed. The reaction rates are first order with respect to the substrate complex and entering ligand and decrease with increasing H+ concentration. In the presence of 0.10 M H+, the rate constants for the replacement of the first water ...
Testing the ruthenium(iii) acetylacetonate and 1,2-bis(diphenylphosphino)ethane system as homogeneous catalyst in the hydrolysis of sodium borohydride
Demiralp, Tülin; Özkar, Saim; Department of Chemistry (2008)
Recent studies have shown that ruthenium(III) acetylacetonate is acting as homogeneous catalyst in the hydrolysis of sodium borohydride. Although trimethlyphosphite is found to be a poison for the catalytic hydrolysis of sodium borohydride, a longer observation of the reaction in the presence of ruthenium(III) acetylacetonate and 2 equivalent trimethylphosphite shows an unexpected enhancement in the catalytic activity after an induction period. The same rate enhancement is observed when 2 equivalent triphen...
Ruthenium(0) nanoparticles supported on xonotlite nanowire: a long-lived catalyst for hydrolytic dehydrogenation of ammonia-borane
Akbayrak, Serdar; Özkar, Saim (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2014-01-01)
Ruthenium(0) nanoparticles supported on xonotlite nanowire (Ru(0)@X-NW) were prepared by the ion exchange of Ru3+ ions with Ca2+ ions in the lattice of xonotlite nanowire followed by their reduction with sodium borohydride in aqueous solution at room temperature. Ru(0)@X-NW were characterized by a combination of advanced analytical techniques. The results show that (i) highly dispersed ruthenium(0) nanoparticles of 4.4 +/- 0.4 nm size were formed on the surface of xonotlite nanowire, (ii) Ru(0)@X-NW show hi...
Synthesis and characterization of tetracarbonylpyrazinetrimethylphosphitetungsten (0) complexes
Alper, Fatma; Özkar, Saim; Department of Chemistry (2004)
In this study, the effect of a donor ligand on the stabilization of a carbonyl pyrazine tungsten complex was studied. The pentacarbonylpyrazinetungsten(0) complex could be formed from the photolysis of hexacarbonyltungsten(0) in the presence of pyrazine and could be isolated as crystalline solid. However, the complex was found to be unstable in solution, being converted to a bimetallic complex, (CO)5W(pyz)W(CO)5 and free pyrazine molecule. Two complexes exist in solution at equilibrium. The equilibrium cons...
