Abstract

The decomposition of cobalt tetracarbonyl hydride to dicobalt octacarbonyl and hydrogen in n-heptane follows the kinetic equation {A figure is presented} The rate determining step is a reaction between HCo(CO)3 and HCo(CO)4, which does not involve the cobalt-hydrogen bonds. The concentration of HCo(CO)3 in equilibrium with HCo(CO)4 can be calculated.
