Substitution at saturated carbon. Part 22. Rate constants for the substitution of tetraethyltin by mercury(II) carboxylates in t-butyl alcohol, acetonitrile, acetone, and ethyl acetate

Abstract

Rate constants are reported for the reactions between tetraethyltin and mercury carboxylates [Hg(O2CR)2] in t-butyl alcohol, acetonitrile, acetone, and ethyl acetate. When the group R contains a -/ group (R = CH2Cl, CH2OMe, or CH2CH 2Cl) the rate constants are greater in all solvents than with R = Me. When R = Et or But rate constants are generally lower than with R = Me except in acetonitrile. It is suggested that in all the above solvents, as well as in methanol, there is dominant electrophilic attack of the mercury(II) carboxylate on the tetraethyltin.
