AB  - Considering that olefins present a large volume feedstock, it is reasonable to expect that their purification is industrially critical. After the discovery of the nickel bis (dithiolene) complex Ni(S2C2(CF3)2)2 that exhibits electro-catalytic activity with olefins but tends to decompose by a competitive reaction route, related complexes have been explored experimentally and theoretically. In this paper, a computational examination is performed on differently charged cobalt and copper bis (oxothiolene) complexes [M (OSC2(CN)2)2] to test their potential applicability as the catalysts for olefin purification, using the simplest olefin, ethylene. Possible reaction pathways for ethylene addition on these complexes were explored, to determine whether some of these candidates can avoid the reaction route that leads to decomposition, which is distinctive from the nickel complex, and to form stable adducts that can subsequently release ethylene by reduction. Our calculations suggest that the neutral cobalt complex might be an alternative catalyst, because all its forms can bind ethylene to produce stable interligand adducts with moderate to low activation barriers, rather than to form intraligand adducts that lead to decomposition. The calculations also predict that these interligand adducts are capable of releasing ethylene upon reduction. In addition, it can produce the desired interligand adducts following two different reaction pathways, assigned as the direct and the indirect, with no need for anion species as co-catalysts, which is crucial for the nickel complex. Thus, the olefin purification process could be much simpler by using this catalyst.

AB  - We performed density functional theory computations to study the structural and electronic properties as the basis of ethylene addition activity for [Ni(XC)4]n (X = Se, S)-extended lattices. We demonstrated that the mechanism of ethylene cycloaddition to a periodic [Ni(SeC)4]n two-dimensional (2D) network is analogous to that previously described for [Ni(SC)4]n 2D sheets and similar to the metal bis(dithiolene) molecular complexes [M(S2C2R2)2] (M = Ni, Pd, Pt, Co, Cu). These nanosheet materials avoid decomposition upon olefin addition, which is one of the main limitations of the molecular metal bis(dithiolene) complexes, as we find the decomposition processes to be thermodynamically unfavorable. Our calculations also suggest that the preferred conformation of the [Ni(SeC)4]n bilayer lattice is parallel displaced, with the Se atoms positioned above the Ni atoms, which is different from the eclipsed conformation found for [Ni(SC)4]n. We also managed to optimize an adduct of [Ni(SC)4]n in the bilayer form, which exceed the ethylene coverage of molecular complexes. We calculate that the preferred three-dimensional geometry of the stacked sheets is eclipsed because of strong van der Waals interactions. Such an arrangement of the sheets indicates that these materials should be highly porous, pointing to the high capacity for olefin bindings. Indeed, a few moderately stable ethylene adducts have been located. Owing to their unique structures and chemical reactivity, these newly predicted materials can be potentially developed as electrocatalysts for olefin purification. © 2018 American Chemical Society.
