Abstract

Replacement reactions of ruthenium recoil atoms have been examined with 97Ru and 103Ru recoil atoms produced by (γ,n) reactions in solid ruthenocene derivative complexes and their cyclodextrin inclusion compounds. The replacement reaction yields were inversely proportional to the square root of the average distance between two adjacent ruthenocene derivative molecules in solids. This relation was successfully explained by the replacement reaction model introducing the attacking probability; a probability of recoil atoms to attack the central atoms in ruthenocene derivative molecules through the geometrical open area of the sandwich structure.
