Bromopentacarbonylrhenium(I) - Reactions


Bromopentacarbonylrhenium(I) is a useful intermediate to other rhenium complexes. For example, it reacts with zinc and acetic acid to give pentacarbonylhydridorhenium (ReH(CO)5).

Re(CO)5Br + Zn + HO2CCH3 → ReH(CO)5 + ZnBrO2CCH3

It also reacts with tetraethylammonium bromide in diglyme to give 2, an important precursor to compounds containing the rhenium tricarbonyl fragment.

Refluxing bromopentacarbonylrhenium(I) in water also provides access to the rhenium tricarbonyl fragment:

ReBr(CO)5 + 3 H2O → Br + 2 CO

This route avoids the formation of the tetraethylammonium bromide byproduct when the tetraethylammonium complex is used. This is desirable because the tetraethylammonium bromide is often difficult to remove from reaction mixtures.

Famous quotes containing the word reactions:

    Cuteness in children is totally an adult perspective. The children themselves are unaware that the quality exists, let alone its desirability, until the reactions of grownups inform them.
    Leontine Young (20th century)

    Prolonged, indiscriminate reviewing of books is a quite exceptionally thankless, irritating and exhausting job. It not only involves praising trash but constantly inventing reactions towards books about which one has no spontaneous feeling whatever.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)

    We have all had the experience of finding that our reactions and perhaps even our deeds have denied beliefs we thought were ours.
    James Baldwin (1924–1987)
