A program involving the investigation and characterization of reactions of coordinatively unsaturated organometallic species is described. The program emphasizes the measurement of rates of reaction of photolytically produced coordinatively unsaturated species with the parent and rates for cluster formation. Experimental measurements are performed using a time resolved transient absorption apparatus which uses a line tunable CO laser to record spectral and kinetic information by means of probing absorptions in the CO stretch region of the infrared. Systems that have been investigated include coordinatively unsaturated species generated from the FeCO5, CrCO6 and Mn2CO10 parents. The results of experiments with these systems are briefly discussed.
