Abstract

This study was designed to provide information about the mechanisms of pentaaquodihalomethyl chromium(III) ions (halo chloro, bromo and iodo).

...

Mechanisms based on carbonium ion, carbeno and carbenoid type intermediates are proposed. A mechanism based on the nucleophillic attack (SN2) of water on the carbon center leading to a metal-formyl type intermediate is suggested as best fitting all the criteria observed in these studies.
