Aromatic substitution. The effect of alcoholic solvents on the reaction of phenyltriethyltin with mercury (II) salts
Second-order rate constants are reported for the cleavage of the phenyltin bond of phenyltriethyltin by mercury(II) salts in ethanol. propan-1-ol, propan2-ol and butan-1-ol. It is shown that the reactivity order for the mercury(II) salts is HgI3- << HgI2 < HgCl2. Activation parameters are reported, and on the basis of the low values of activation enthalpies the presence of an intermediate π-complex is suggested for the reactions.
