Abstract

Ni(II) does not normally bind CO. We show how a judicious choice of ligand set and coordination geometry can make this possible as in NiCl2(PMe3)2-(CO). The two factors that favor CO binding are the TBP geometry and the presence of donor ligands. The relevance to CODH, a Ni-containing enzyme, is discussed.
