Abstract

The novel chelating PNP pincer ligand 2,5-bis((diphenylphosphino)methyl)-1H-pyrrole (1) was prepared and its nickel coordination chemistry explored. The reaction with Ni(COD)2 led to a diamagnetic dinuclear nickel(I) complex (4) which was also obtained by the reaction of the square planar NiII complexes [(PNP-Ph2)NiX] (X = Cl (2), X = I (3)) with Li(Et3BH).
