Abstract : The objective of this work was to examine some of the ways in which coordination can alter the reactivity of typical ligands. The principal achievements of the work carried out under this project are the following: A quantitative treatment of the masking of ligand reactivity via coordination, including equations which describe the variation in observed rate constants with mole ratios; The discovery of several new systems in which coordination of an otherwise reactive ligand leads to partial or complete masking of its typical reactivity patterns. Related to this is the discovery of a new reaction in which large bridging cations facilitate electron transfer; The discovery of a new reaction: the nickel (II) catalyzed iodination of 2-Amino-2-hydroxyethyl-1,3 propanediol. Each of these is summarized briefly. (Author)
