The possible mechanisms by which an alkyl group may transfer from one metal to another have been reviewed, together with evidence for these mechanisms. The nature and properties of the organic derivatives of the Group II metals have been reviewed, with particular reference to the alkylmetal halides. In the present work the relative rates of reaction of dimethylzinc, diethylzinc and di-n-propylzinc with phenylmercuric chloride were found to be in the order Me
