Abstract

The purpose of this thesis was to determine the kinetics and stoichiometry for the aquation of the pentaaquomonobromonmethylchromium(III) complex. The complex was prepared by the reduction of dibromomethane by chromium(II). The products of aquation, in the absence of oxygen, were found to be hexaaquachromium(III), methanol, and bromide. The balanced net ionic reaction can be written: 2H2O + (H2O)5CrCH2Br2+ → (H2O)6Cr3+ + CH3OH + Br-
