The specific rates of reaction of 16 aliphatic radicals with Cr(H2O)62+ were determined. The absorption spectra due to the chromium-carbon bonds in the products of these reactions were measured. The specific rates of aquation of these complexes as a function of pH were determined. The effects of the structure of the aliphatic radicals on these spectra and specific rates of reactions are discussed in detail. It is shown that chromium induces water elimination when a β-hydroxyl group is present.
