Abstract

Gas-phase ion-ion reactions between tris-1,10-phenantholine metal dications, [(phen)3M]2+ (where M = Ni and Mg), and the tetraphenylborate anion yield the ion-pairs {[(phen)3M]2+[BPh4]}+. The ion-pairs undergo transmetalation upon loss of a phen ligand to give the organometallic complexes [(phen)2M(Ph)]+. DFT calculations, used to determine the energy barriers for the transmetalation reactions and the hydrolysis reactions, are entirely consistent with the experimental results.
