Abstract

The β-diketiminato nickel(I) complex K2[LtBuNiI(N22−)NiILtBu] reacts with CO2via reductive disproportionation to form CO and CO32− containing products, whereas after employment of the NiI precursor [LtBuNiI(N2)NiILtBu] reductive coupling of CO2 was observed giving an oxalate bridged dinickel(II) complex. The addition of KC8 to the carbonate and oxalate compounds formed leads to the regeneration of the initial NiI complexes in an N2 atmosphere, thus closing synthetic cycles.
