    Abstract

    A Rh III monohydride terpyridine complex undergoes reductive elimination of H 2 in CH 3CN to form a dinuclear Rh II complex with a metal-metal bond. Kinetic studies have revealed that the conversion from the monohydride species to the dinuclear species with evolution of H 2 obeys first-order kinetics and have determined the kinetic deuterium isotope effect value to be 2.0. We discuss the mechanism for the reductive elimination of H 2 from rhodium hydride species.
