Organometallics paper by Richard O'Hair

Which factors control transmetalation? To answer this question at the strictly molecular level, the transfer of a phenyl ring from boron to silver or to lithium in isolated ionic tetraphenylborate complexes was examined by multistage mass spectrometry and quantum chemical calculations in a joint collaboration between Richard O'Hair and Thomas Auth and Konrad Koszinowski from the University of Göttingen.
