Abstract

Intermolecular rearrangement of cobalt phenylsiloxanes was studied. The rearrangement leads to the formation of compounds with metal oxide moieties in the organosiloxane structure and is accompanied by a change in the spectral characteristics of cobalt(II), determined by the second coordination sphere of the metal. The rate-determining step is the decomposition of an intermediate complex formed upon the coordination of the metal siloxane moieties.
