[60]Fullerene Displacement from (Dihapto-Buckminster-Fullerene) Pentacarbonyl Tungsten(0): An Experiment for the Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory, Part II
Cortes-Figueroa, Jose E.; Moore-Russo, Deborah A.
Journal of Chemical Education, v83 n11 p1670-1673 Nov 2006
The kinetics experiments on the ligand-C[subscript 60] exchange reactions on (dihapto-[60]fullerene) pentacarbonyl tungsten(0), ([eta][superscript 2]-C[subscript 60])W(CO)[subscript 5], form an educational activity for the inorganic chemistry laboratory that promotes graphical thinking as well as the understanding of kinetics, mechanisms, and the temperature dependence of rate constant values. It provides an opportunity for students to apply the concept of activation parameters to confirm or disprove a proposed mechanism and the relation between activation enthalpy and activation energy with the thermodynamic bond enthalpy and bond energy, respectively. (Contains 3 figures.)
