Abstract The mechanism of reaction of alkyl isocyanides with [(η5-C5H5)(CO)3MoCH2C6H5] to yield isocyanide-substituted acyl complexes is similar to that of the corresponding reaction with tertiary phosphines in that two pathways, one an indirect route involving solvent assistance and the other a direct nucleophilic attack by isocyanide, exist. At very high isocyanide concentrations, decreases in reaction rate, which can be related to the lowering of solvent concentration are observed. The reaction is mildly enhanced by electron-donating substituents. The reaction with cyclohexylisocyanide in benzene yields, in addition to the acyl product, a chelated imino-acyl complex which probably forms by photo- decarbonylation of the acyl derivative.
