Abstract:Group 6 metal atoms, generated by laser ablation, react with
CO2 to give the insertion products OMCO
and O2M(CO)2 (M = Cr, Mo, or W) which
have been isolated in argon matrices and identified by the effects
isotopic substitution on their infrared spectra. These assignments
have been supported by DFT calculations, and the
theoretical and experimental spectra are in excellent agreement.
Other products include the molecules
MO, and MCO and the CO2 complex Cr
(η1-OCO) which, upon irradiation with
UV-light… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
