Materials Modeling research cluster study highlighted in Chemical and Engineering News

8902NOTWnickel_pg6-2.gifTom Cundari, professor of chemistry and co-coordinator for the Materials Modeling research cluster, contributes research to a multi-institution study of nickel complex.

The multi-institution research team has prepared the first two-coordinate transition-metal complex containing an imido ligand. This coordinatively unsaturated nickel(II) complex demonstrates enhanced chemical reactivity over more highly coordinated complexes and potentially signals a new facet of research for organometallic chemists.

The active versions of transition-metal complexes in many chemical reactions, such as olefin metathesis and the reduction of nitrogen to ammonia, contain multiple bonds between a metal with a vacant d orbital and a ligand with abundant electron density. But chemists struggle to re-create these reactive intermediates as isolable molecules.
