Reactivity of a Nickel(II) Bis(amidate) Complex with meta-Chloroperbenzoic Acid: Formation of a Potent Oxidizing Species

Herein, we report the formation of a highly reactive nickel-oxygen species that has been trapped following reaction of a NiII precursor bearing a macrocyclic bis(amidate) ligand with meta-chloroperbenzoic acid (HmCPBA). This compound is only detectable at temperatures below 250 K and is much more reactive toward organic substrates (i.e., CH bonds, CC bonds, and sulfides) than previously reported well-defined nickel-oxygen species. Remarkably, this species is formed by heterolytic OO bond cleavage of a Ni-HmCPBA precursor, which is concluded from experimental and computational data. On the basis of spectroscopy and DFT calculations, this reactive species is proposed to be a NiIII-oxyl compound. A highly reactive nickel-oxygen species has been spectroscopically trapped after heterolytic OO bond cleavage during the reaction of a NiII precursor with meta-chloroperbenzoic acid (HmCPBA). This species is used to carry out the oxidation of different substrates, such as olefins, sulfides, and CH bonds (see scheme)
