Biologically importantNatures antioxidantCoupling Reaction: Traditional Catalytic Cycle

Oxidative Addition: M(0) M(ii) Addition of Organic halide to the M

Transmetalation: Transfer of alkyl/aryl group from one metal to another High activation energy Rate determining stepTwo electron transfer processReductive Elimination:Final Product Regeneration of the catalystM(ii) M(0)

ObjectiveMetal atom having variable Ox. State ie. loose/gain electron relatively easilyCan accelerate many chemical reaction as catalystTune the coordination environment around metal Can be used in coupling reactions.

Concept of Nickel(IV) Complexes

Pd & Ni share same group so, they should have similar analogy.

Can Ni(IV) be prepared & equally useful?

Pd(IV) has mediated many important C-X coupling reactions.

Why Ni instead of Pd?

Fig:Price of the elements (in $/kg) Vs. their annual production (in kg/yr).(Chem. Rev. 2016, 116, 35943657)More sustainable and economicalFavourable intrinsic properties

Lower atomic radius

More Number of oxidation states.Lesselectronegativity

Does Ni(IV) complex accessible?

Reaction Scheme



Ni(IV) complex is stable due to presence of strong EWG.

Which oxidant to use ?

Tridentate instead of bidentate ligand

-[NiII]>Immediate colour chan from dark red to yellow. >much stable than bidentate ligand Ni complex.

92% yield isolated by recrystallzationSolid state, Octahedral geometryHow to stabilise Ni(iv) complex

X(78%)X=OPh,SPhComplicated mixtures of productsWhich Ni precursor to use forNucleophiles like OPh and SPh?Works only with Acetate!Precursor which gives neutral intermediateWhy?Due to positive charge on Ni(IV) Intermediate!Reactivity of NiIV complex

The Ni(IV) intermediate does not have any charge on it

Lesser side product.

Good selectivity.

Application of Ni(IV) complex as catalyst

-N2Adventitious water-Ni(II)

>Pharmaceuticals >Chemical industries. Dimethyl indole (is used as photorefractive material ) can be prepared by using nickel(IV) complex through alkyl azide formation


A series of Organometallic Niiv complexes are designed, synthesized . Niiv complexes undergo highly selective carbon(sp3)-oxygen, carbon(sp3)-nitrogen, and carbon(sp3)-sulfur coupling reactions with exogenous nucleophiles. Observed reactivity has the potential for direct applications in the development of nickel-catalyzed carbon-heteroatom coupling reactions.
