The reaction behavior of the complex [Cr<sub>3</sub>(μ<sub>3</sub>-O)(μ-O<sub>2</sub>CH)<sub>6</sub>-(H<sub>2</sub>O)<sub>2</sub>(O<sub>2</sub>CH)]·<i>x</i>H<sub>2</sub>O [shown as (Cr<sub>3</sub>FF)] has been investigated in the system of acetylene with water vapor by means of <i>in situ</i> IR and TG analyses. It has been observed that some active fragments obtained by the loss of part of the ligands of (Cr<sub>3</sub>FF) demonstrated activity for the additional reaction of acetylene with water or hydrogen, forming either acetaldehyde or ethylene. On the basis of the study of the thermo-decomposition process, as well as the FAB-MS data, the nature of these active fragments has been elucidated.
