Photo-induced tautomerisation ofmethyltrioxorhenium(VII): the intermediate in olefinmetathesis?

Author affiliations


Matrix-isolated [CH3ReO3] tautomerises to [H2C[double bond, length half m-dash]Re(O)2OH] under the influence of UV light; the carbene has been characterised in its normal and 2H- and 13C-enriched isotopic forms by its IR spectrum with results well replicated by quantum chemical calculations.
