Recoil implantation reactions were studied in binary mixtures of catcher complexes of tris(β-diketonato)metal(III) and in single-component catcher complexes of Cr(acac)n(dbm)3where n = 1 and 2. For the mixtures of M(acac)3and M(dbm)3, the products of 51Cr(acac)3and 51Cr(dbm)3were obtained as major components while51Cr(acac)2(dbm) and 51Cr(acac)(dbm)2were seen as minor components. For the single component catcher complexes, predominant chemical species were parent retention type compounds. In addition to retentions there were product distributions which indicated a strong preference for acac pickup. The results were interpreted by a model which involves displacement reaction as a main process and ligand pickup reactions as side processes.
