The formyl complex [(H2O)5CrCHO]2+ is formed in aqueous solution via the reaction sequence: Cr2+(aq.) + ·CH(OH)2 → [(H2O)5CrCH(OH) 2]2+ → [(H2O)5CrCHO +2] + H2O, and reduces formaldehyde (k = 1 mol -1 dm3 s-1), yielding CO + CH3OH; the spectra of [(H2O)5CrCH(OH)2]2+ and [(H2O)5CrCHO]2+ are reported.
