The purpose of this study was to prepare and characterize the coordination compounds produced by the reaction of five cycloalkanecarboxylic acids and a rhodium salt. The five acids that furnished the ligands were: cyclopropanecarboxylic acid, cyclobutanecrboxylic acid, cyclopentanecarboxylit acid, cyclohexanecarboxylic acid, and a cycloheptanecarboxylic acid. The rhodium (Ill) ion was provided by the salt Na3RhCl6•12H20, A survey of the available literature indicated that these rhodium (Ill) cyclo-alkane carboxylates had not previously been prepared.
