A T-Shaped Nickel(I) Metalloradical Species

A T-Shaped Nickel(I) Metalloradical Species
Yunho Lee, Changho Yoo
A T-shaped nickel(I) metalloradical species is prepared using a rigid acridane-based PNP pincer ligand revealing its novel open-shell reactivity. In their Communication (10.1002/anie.201704487), Y. Lee and C. Yoo show that because of its sterically exposed half-filled dx2−y2 orbital, this d9 metalloradical species shows unique reactivity including the homolytic cleavage of various σ-bonds, such as H–H, N—N, and C—C via a binuclear two-electron process.
