Control of Reductive Elimination and Acidolysis of Diarylnickel(II) Complexes by the Kind of Bronsted Acid and the Presence of Oxygen
Reaction of NiAr<SUB>2</SUB>(bpy) (Ar = electron withdrawing aryl group, bpy = 2,2′-bipypridyl) with Brønsted acids leads to reductive elimination of Ar-Ar from NiAr<SUB>2</SUB>(bpy). The reaction also causes acidolysis of the Ni complex depending on the kind of the acid and reaction conditions.
