Abstract

Oxygenation of the products derived thermally (-70°C) from [Cr 2(?5-C5H5)2(CO) 6] or photochemically from [{(?5-C5H 5)Cr(CO)3Cu(phen)}n]; (phen = 1,10-phenanthroline) and [Hg{Cr(?5-C5H 6)(CO)3}2] gives rise to an e.s.r. signal assigned to [Cr(?5-C5H5)(CO) n(O2)] (n = 2 or 3); evidence in support of this structure is adduced from experiments using the deuterium labelled complex [Hg{Cr(?5-C5D5)(CO)3} 2] and by the use of 17O2-enriched dioxygen.
