Abstract

The reactions of methyl radicals with MII-(ntp)(H2O)2 complexes were studied. The formation of an unstable intermediate (ntp)(H2O)MIII-CH3 is observed. This reaction is an equilibrium process, i.e. the MIII-C bond decomposes via homolysis. The (ntp)(H2O)MIII-CH3 complexes isomerize to a more stable form. The results compared to those obtained in analogous reactions of the MII-(nta)(H2O)2 complexes were shown to be similar with one exception–for the nta complexes no isomerization process is observed.
