Abstract

We report a rate law, rate constants and a mechanism for the ligand substitution reaction between Ni(tetren)2+ and 2, 2'-bipyridine in aqueous solution at 25.0 0C. The rate law is: R = k [Ni(tetren2+)] [bipy]. The data supports a mechanism involving a hydrogen ion assisted pathway in which a ternary complex is not formed.
