Title: [Ni III(OMe)]-mediated reductive activation of CO 2 affording a Ni(κ 1-OCO) complex

Abstract

Here, carbon dioxide is expected to be employed as an inexpensive and potential feedstock of C 1 sources for the mass production of valuable chemicals and fuel. Versatile chemical transformations of CO 2, i.e. insertion of CO 2 producing bicarbonate/acetate/formate, cleavage of CO 2 yielding μ-CO/μ-oxo transition-metal complexes, and electrocatalytic reduction of CO 2 affording CO/HCOOH/CH 3OH/CH 4/C 2H 4/oxalate were well documented. Herein, we report a novel pathway for the reductive activation of CO 2 by the [Ni III(OMe)(P(C 6H 3-3-SiMe 3-2-S) 3)] complex, yielding the [Ni III1-OCO˙ )(P(C 6H 3-3-SiMe 3-2-S) 3)] complex. The formation of this unusual Ni III1-OCO ˙–) complex was characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, EPR, IR, SQUID, Ni/S K-edge X-ray absorption spectroscopy, and Ni valence-to-core X-ray emission spectroscopy. The inertness of the analogous complexes [Ni III(SPh)], [Ni II(CO)], and [Ni II(N 2H 4)] toward CO 2, in contrast, demonstrates that the ionic [Ni III(OMe)] core attracts the binding of weak σ-donor CO 2 and triggers the subsequent reduction of CO 2 by the nucleophilic [OMe] in the immediate vicinity. This metal–ligand cooperative activation of CO 2 may open a novel pathway promoting the subsequent incorporation of CO 2 inmore » the buildup of functionalized products.« less
