Abstract:

We studied the reaction mechanism for the reaction between bis[1,2-di(trifluoromethyl) ethylene-1,2-dithiolato] nickel (Ni[S2C2(CF3)2]2) and butadiene by density functional theory (DFT) at the B3LYP/6-31G(d) level. The solvent effect on the charge distribution, dipole moment, and solvation free energies of the stationary points were investigated using the polarizable continuum model (PCM). The calculation results showed that this reaction was orbital symmetry allowed and concerted. The reaction stationary points become more stable with an increase of solvent dielectric constant. Additionally, the degree of stabilization for the transition state and the product is larger than that of the reactants in the same solvent, which means that the reaction occurs more easily.
