Abstract

The mechanism of chain end controlled unlike enantioselectivity for a Brookhart-type Ni(II) catalyst, whose stereospecific behavior as well as active catalytic species are well established, is investigated. In particular, a theoretical study of the quantum mechanics/molecular mechanics (QM/MM) study relative to diastereoisomeric transition states corresponding to propene primary insertion for the catalytic system based on diacetylbis(2,5-diisopropylphenylimine)nickel derivative was performed.
