Tetramethylcyclobutadiene nickel dichloride is a dark red, half-sandwich nickel metallocene with both aqueous and organic solubility. It reacts extensively with horse liver alcohol dehydrogenase (EC 1.1.1.1), forming an orange, soluble adduct that is stable at least to moderate dialysis and essentially devoid of native zinc and also enzymatic activity. This modified enzyme contains nearly 8 mol nickel per mol and possesses a positive Cotton effect. Under the same conditions, nickel chloride has… Expand
