Conference paper


The rates of substitution reactions of trans -[Rhen2Cl2]+ are first -order in complex concentration and independent of the nature and concentration of the substituting group. They also proceed without stereochemical rearrangement (1). These reactions appear, therefore, to be free of the difficulties which complicate studies of Co(III) and Pt(IV) complexes and were accordingly chosen as suitable for systematic investigation of the trans -effect in octahedral complexes.
