What is it about?

In this work we discuss the influence of solvents on the stability of Cr and W complexes. It is observed that this stability depends on the metal as well as the path followed by the reaction so that the organic ligand is replaced by one or more solvent molecules.

Why is it important?

The knowledge of these reaction trucks help to understand the behavior of for example organometallic catalysts that are very important to carry out a cleaner and friendly chemical with the environment, it is called green chemistry.


In-depth knowledge of elementary processes such as a ligand exchange can allow for better management of the catalysts and the design of more sustainable processes over time without endangering the environment.
