Abstract

In typical catalytic organic transformations, transition metals in catalytically active complexes are present in their most stable valence states, such as palladium(0) and (II). However, some dimeric monovalent metal complexes can be stabilized by auxiliary ligands to form diamagnetic compounds with metal–metal bonding interactions. These diamagnetic compounds can act as catalysts while retaining their dimeric forms, split homolytically or heterolytically into monomeric forms, which usually have high activity, or in contrast, become completely deactivated as catalysts. Recently, many studies using group 10 metal complexes containing nickel and palladium have demonstrated that under specific conditions, the active forms of these catalyst precursors are not mononuclear zerovalent complexes, but instead dinuclear monovalent metal complexes. In this mini-review, we have surveyed the preparation, reactivity, and the catalytic processes of dinuclear nickel(I) and palladium(I) complexes, focusing on mechanistic insights into the precatalyst activation systems and the structure and behavior of nickel and palladium intermediates.
