    Mechanistic studies show the importance of iodide displacement by additives that accelerate reactions of samarium diiodide. The key feature important for acceleration of reaction rate is the use of proton donors and other additives that have a high enough affinity for Sm(II) to displace iodide yet do not saturate the coordination sphere inhibiting substrate reduction. © 2010 American Chemical Society.
