Abstract

The electrochemistry of nine cyclic tetraamine complexes of Ni(II) in aprotic solvents has been investigated. It is shown that all form Ni(I) complexes which react with alkyl bromides, but only with some complexes are the reactions catalytic with respect to the nickel complex. The dependence of the electrochemical parameters and the mechanism and kinetics of the coupled chemical reactions on the structure of the ligands are discussed.
