An Infrared and NMR Study of the Bonding between Olefins and Silver Ions
An earlier study (1) of the stoichiometry and stability of crystalline complexes of some mono-olefins with anhydrous silver fluoroborate established that these were quite stable by comparison with those silver ion -olefin complexes which had been known and that, with the exception of ethylene, the most stable complex in every instance had a silver ion:olefin stoichiometric ratio of 1:2. The study established as well an essentially linear correlation between the ionization potential of the olefin and the infrared shift in the double bond stretch vibration frequency upon complexation with the silver salt.
