A kinetic study has been made of reactions of zinc ion replacement by copper in complexes with macrocyclic and noncyclic tetramines. The activation parameters of these processes have been determined, and reaction mechanisms are proposed. A kinetic macrocyclic effect has been found in reactions of central atom replacement in tetraazamacrocyclic complexes of zinc.
