Abstract: This paper described a detailed theoretical analysis of ESR spectrum line width of the cobalt complex (RC_2R/)Co(CO)(PR"_3)_2 in solution. Triple-jump kinetic model was first used in the Trans-Cis isomerism of the complex.A formula concerning ESR line width as a function of the basic line width T_(20)~(-1), hyperfine splitting constants of all isomers in solution, and lifetime of the exchange of ligand PR"_3 were suggested on the relationship between the correlation function and the hyperfine splitting constant. The calculated, exchange lifetime of the ligand P(OEt)_3 in the title complex (Ph_2C_2)Co(CO)[P(OEt)_3]_2 at 290 K is 5.6×10~(-11) s.

Key words: Cobalt complex, Ligand exchange, Tripe-jump model
