Invited Lectures at ZIOC RAS


September 14, 2017: "Adventures in Nickel N-Heterocyclic Carbene Chemistry and Catalysis"

Prof. Michael Chetcuti, Laboratoire de Chimie, Organométallique, ECPM, Université de Strasbourg, France.

Location: Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow. Directions: map.


This seminar will discuss some of our recent work in the field of nickel-N-heterocyclic carbene chemistry. After a brief introduction to the topic, the syntheses and properties of a series of nickel-N-heterocyclic carbene complexes bearing cyclopentadienyl ligands will be presented. Their reactions in base-assisted C–H activation reactions, and in the catalysis of coupling reactions and of ketone arylation will be presented.

Some of our recent papers in this the general area:

1) "Nickel(II) complexes of highly σ-donating cyclic (alkyl)(amino)- and malonate-carbenes: syntheses and catalytic studies", Organometallics, 2017, 36, 1113.

2) "Nickel N-Heterocyclic Carbene-Catalyzed C-Heteroatom Bond Formation, Reduction, and Oxidation: Reactions and Mechanistic Aspects" ACS Catalysis, 2016, 6, 890.

3) "Nickel N‑Heterocyclic Carbene-Catalyzed C−C Bond Formation: Reactions and Mechanistic Aspects" ACS Catalysis, 2015, 5, 1283.

4) "From acetone metalation to the catalytic alpha-arylation of acyclic ketones with NHC–nickel(II) complexes" Chem. Commun., 2014, 50, 4624.
