Attempt of a Unified View

  • Gisela Henrici-Olivé
  • Salvador Olivé


In this Chapter we try to unify the mechanistic details we have been working through in the course of the book, to a general picture of the catalyzed hydrogenation of CO. It should be born in mind that neither the mechanistic details referred to, nor the intended unified picture are proven. They are the best guess, taking into account presently known experimental data, and avoiding to violate known principles of the reaction patterns of transition metal centers.
