Reactions of (1,5-cyclooctadiene)duroquinonenickel with electron donors

  • 25 Accesses

  • 3 Citations


Electron transfer from the reducing agent to the complex occurs when the electron donors, sodionaphthalene and sodiomalonic ester, act on (1,5-cyclooctadiene)duroquinonenickel, with the formation of the [(C8H12)(DQ)Ni]· anion radicals, which proved to be thermally less stable and more reactive than the anion radicals of bis(duroquinone)nickel.
