Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Cobalt porphyrin complexes were studied as potential catalytic cycle intermediates in the dechlorination of perchloroethylene and trichloroethylene, pollutants commonly found in groundwater. Different halo-vinyl complexes of tetraphenylporphyrin cobalt were prepared and studied to compare stability and reactivity differences. The preparation, characterization, and reactivity of the (trans-2-bromovinyl)(tetraphenylporphyrin) cobalt were presented. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 231st ACS National Meeting (Atlanta, GA 3/26-30/2006).
