Two mixed ligand complexes were also synthesized and studied in order to further probe the structural and electronic factors responsible for the reactivity of these Ni(II) diphosphine complexes. The reactivity of these and other Ni(II) diphosphine complexes toward carbon monoxide is explored in an attempt to synthesize rare Ni(II)-CO complexes and better understand the structural features responsible for CO binding in [(CO)Ni(PCy 2NBz2)2](BF4)2 .Additional compounds were later synthesized in the Sellman lab involving only sulfurs in the coordination sphere of Ni that were able to catalyze D2/H+ exchange under an elevated pressure of D2 (18 bar).25 Interestingly, a heterobimetallicanbsp;...
