Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An isolated Ni(ii)-nitrosyl complex supported by the bulky tridentate 1,4,7-triisopropyl-1,4,7-triazacyclononane (iPr3TACN) ligand was obtained from the reaction of a Ni(ii) dimethyl complex with NOPF6, suggesting the in situ formation of a Ni(i) species that reacts with the resulting NO product. Use of a π-acceptor ancillary isocyanide ligand led to the isolation and characterization of an uncommon 5-coordinate Ni(i) complex supported by the iPr3TACN ligand and tert-butylisocyanide.
