Introduction

Nickel acetyl acetonate is also known as bis(acetylacetonato) nickel(II ). It has been used as a catalyst for oligomerization, telomerization, hydrosilylation, reduction, cross-coupling, oxidation, conjugate addition, addition to multiple bonds and rearrangement reactions. It is a pale green solid (mp = 240 °C) that is soluble in ethers and ­aromatic and halogenated hydrocarbons.
