Abstract

The coupling reaction between azolium salts (N-heterocyclic carbene precursors) and ethylene, catalyzed
by zerovalent nickel complexes, has been investigated using a combination of experiment and density
functional theory (DFT). The reaction proceeds via a redox mechanism involving the generation of Nicarbene
intermediates. The experimental studies employed an in situ catalyst system, derived from Ni-
(COD)2 and a variety of phosphine and N-heterocyclic carbene spectator ligands, to couple 1-propyl-3-
methylimidazolium bromide (ionic liquid) and other azolium salts with ethylene. The DFT studies employed
the simpler dimethylimidazolium salt to model the reaction.
