On the non-innocence of “Nacnacs”: ligand-based reactivity in β-diketiminate supported coordination compounds

Author affiliations

Abstract

While β-diketiminate (BDI or ‘nacnac’) ligands have been widely adopted to stabilize a wide range of metal ions in multiple oxidation states and coordination numbers, in several occurrences these ligands do not behave as spectators and participate in reactivity. Besides unwanted decomposition processes, BDI redox non-innnocence and unusual metal–ligand cooperative activation of substrates yielding attractive reactivity have been reported. This feature article will provide a comprehensive analysis of the various transformations involving BDI ligand platforms in coordination compounds across the periodic table.
