Data for: Time-resolved photoacoustic calorimetry of organometallic ligand substitution in alkane solvents: molybdenum-alkane sigma complex controls ultrafast ligand addition to molybdenum pentacarbonyl
Tables and plots photoacoustic calorimetry signal amplitudes and lifetimes, observed rate constants as a function of ligand concentrations for substitution with molybdenum hexacarbonyl in alkane solvents. Solvent include pentane, hexane, heptane, octane, decane and dodecane. Plots of PAC amplitudes as a function of solvent expansivity to determine reaction enthalpies and reaction volumes. Ligands include acetonitrile, triethylphosphine oxide, triethylphosphine, tetrahydrofuran, tetrahydrothiophene, pyridine, triethylphoshite, triethylphosphate, and 1-bromobutane.
