Abstract

Studies have been made of the rates of many reactions involving organometallic compounds, by means of the color test of Gilman and Schulze. These rate studies comprise: (1) the relative reactivities of a variety of compounds towards a typical organometallic compound; (2) the relative reactivities of a series of related compounds like nitriles or azo compounds with an organometallic compound; (3) and, the differences in rate of reaction of a series of organometallic compounds towards other compounds.. The same method has been used in a study of the effect of concentration, temperature and catalysts on reaction rates. Also, it has been shown to be of service in a study of the mechanism of reactions, like the two-stage conversion of esters to ketones to tertiary alcohols; and the lability and relative electronegativities of radicals.
