Abstract in another language

The coligand X was varied in the organonickel complexes [Ni(Phbpy)X] (X = F, Cl, Br, I, C6F5) carrying the anionic tridentate C∧N∧N ligand 6-(phen-2-ide)-2,2′-bipyridine (Phbpy–) to study its effect on electronic structures of these complexes and their activity in Negishi-like C–C cross-coupling catalysis. The complexes were synthesized from the precursor [Ni(COD)2] (COD = 1,5-cyclooctadiene) by chelate-assisted oxidative addition into the phenyl C–X bond of the protoligand 6-(2-halidophenyl)-2,2′-bipyridine) and were obtained as red powders. Protoligands X–Phbpy carrying the halide surrogates X = OMe, OTf (triflate) failed in this reaction. Single-crystal XRD allowed us to add the structures of [Ni(Phbpy)Cl] and [Ni(Phbpy)I] to the previously reported Br derivative. Cyclic voltammetry showed reversible reductions for X = C6F5, F, Cl, while for Br and I the reversibility is reduced through rapid splitting of X– after reduction (EC mechanism). UV–vis spectroelectrochemistry confirmed the decreasing degree of reversibility along the series C6F5 > F > Cl ≫ Br > I, which parallels the “leaving group character” of the X coligands. This method also revealed mainly bpy centered reduction and essentially Ni(II)/Ni(III) oxidations, as corroborated by DFT calculations. The rather X-invariant long-wavelength UV–vis absorptions and excited states were analyzed in detail using TD-DFT and were consistent with predominant metal to ligand charge transfer (MLCT) character. Initial catalytic tests under Negishi-like conditions showed the complexes to be active as catalysts in C–C cross-coupling reactions but did not display marked differences along the series from Ni–F to Ni–I.
