The equilibrium between acetylcobalt tetracarbonyl on one side and methylcobalt tetracarbonyl and carbon monoxide on the other has been determined in the 0-100°C temperature range. The decarbonylation of acetylcobalt tetracarbonyl is endothermic (ΔH = 11.2±0.6 Kcal mol-1) and is accompanied by a positive entropy change (ΔS = 19.5±2.0 e.u.).
