Abstract: Fast time-resolved infrared (TRIR) spectroscopy has been used to study a wide range of organometallic alkane and noble-gas complexes at ambient temperature. We have shown that the reactivity of the n-heptane complexes decreases both across and down Groups V, VI, and VII, and that the corresponding xenon complexes have similar reactivities.
