Evidence for the ability of the electrogenerated cationic nickel(I) complex [Ni(PPh3)4]+ to promote the isomerization of allylbenzene is reported. However, the corresponding triethylphosphitenickel(I) complex displays no catalytic activity, apparently due to the poor leavinggroup character exhibited by the phosphite. The involvement of a π-allylnickel hydride in the isomerization reaction is inferred from a comparison of the results obtained with those for the same reaction promoted by nickel hydride. © 1987 Chapman and Hall Ltd.
