The three-coordinate Ni(i) complex Ni(Cl)(P 2), where P 2 is the diphosphine iPrDPDBFphos, reacts with the acids HCl·(dioxane) and 2,6-lutidinium chloride to generate Ni(H)(Cl)(P 2) and Ni(Cl) 2(P 2). Photolysis of the Ni(H)(X)(P 2) (for X = Cl, Br) results in formation of H 2 and the Ni(i) halide. This reaction also proceeds in reverse when heated.
