Synthesis, Structure, and Electrochemistry of Di- and Zerovalent Nickel, Palladium, and Platinum Monomers and Dimers Derived from an Enantiopure ( S , S )-Tetra(Tertiary Phosphine)

Kitto, Heather; Rae, A David; Webster, Richard; Willis, Anthony; Wild, Stanley (Bruce)


The ligand (S,S)-1,1,4,7,10,10-hexaphenyl-1,4,7,10-tetraphosphadecane, (S,S)-tetraphos, reacts with hexa(aqua)-nickel(II) chloride in the presence of trimethylsilyl triflate (TMSOTf) in dichloromethane to give the yellow square-planar complex [Ni{(R,R)-tetraphos}](OTf)2, which has been crystallographically characterized as the square-pyramidal, acetonitrile adduct [Ni(NCMe){(R,R)-tetraphos}]OTf. Cyclic voltammograms of the nickel(II) complex in dichloromethane and acetonitrile at 20°C showed...[Show more]
