The effect of the nature of organic electron transfer agents and of PtII, PdII, RhII, CoII, NiII, CuII, CrIII, MnII, TiIII, VIII, ZnII, and AgI metal ions on the kinetics of the homogeneous reduction ofgem-dichlorocyclopropanes has been studied. PtII, PdII, RhIII, CoII, and NiII ions accelerate this process, VIII and AgI ions exert practically no effect on the reduction rate, and the rest of the metal ions exhibit inhibitor properties.
