Kinetics, thermodynamics, and effect of BPh3 on competitive C-C and C-H bond activation reactions in the interconversion of allyl cyanide by [Ni(dippe)].


Reaction of [(dippe)Ni(micro-H)](2) with allyl cyanide at low temperature quantitatively generates the eta(2)-olefin complex (dippe)Ni(CH(2)=CHCH(2)CN) (1). At ambient temperature or above, the olefin complex is converted to a mixture of C-CN cleavage product (dippe)Ni(eta(3)-allyl)(CN) (3) and the olefin-isomerization products (dippe)Ni(eta(2)-crotonitrile… (More)
