Taking advantage of four for a nickel Metal atoms change their oxidation state—i.e., lose or gain electrons—relatively easily. This is a major reason why metal compounds accelerate so many chemical reactions. Camasso and Sanford now report a straightforward way to prepare complexes of nickel in the +4 oxidation state, based on careful tuning of the coordination environment around the metal center (see the Perspective by Riordan). These complexes could prove useful in coupling carbon to oxygen…
