An evaluation of the CO releasing ability of iron(II) and molybdenum(II) complexes has facilitated the discovery of the most rapid CO releaser, namely [Mo(CO)(3)(eta(5)-C(5)H(5))(eta(1)-{O}-C{=O}-O-CMe=CH-COMe=CBr)]BF(4) (CORM-F10), reported to date. The rate of CO release is related to the overall solution phase stability of the transition metal carbonyl complex. The cytotoxicity and vasodilatory properties of CORM-F10 have been determined.
