- Content Description: The site of initial metal-carbonyl bond-breaking during ligand-exchange reactions in a series of octahedral metal carbonyls of the type (L2)M(CO)4 (M = Cr, Mo, W; L2 = diphos, phen, dipy) has been determined employing infrared spectroscopy and Fourier transform nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. The results of this study reveal, for all metal carbonyl complexes of the type mentioned above, that loss of CO occurs exclusively at an axial position (cis to the bidentate ligand, I^)• The dynamic nature of the five-coordinate intermediates, such as (diphos)Mo(CO)3, (phen)M(CO)3 (M = Cr, Mo, W), and (dipy)Cr(CO)3, which are generated in solution upon CO dissociation, is reported and discussed. The results of this investigation confirm that these intermediates are fluxional on the time scale of CO-exchange process. A mechanism which describes the site of initial metal-carbonyl bond-breaking and the fluxionality of the five-coordinate intermediate during ligand-exchange reactions in the complexes (L2)M(CO)4 is proposed. A kinetic study of reactions of W(CO)6 with pseudo-halide anions (NCS-, NCO-, CN-) has been initiated. The results indicate that these reactions proceed via a bimolecular path, which involves initial attack of the pseudo-halide anion at a carbonyl carbon of W(CO)6,
