The addition reactions of N,N′-bis(diphenylphosphanylmethyl)-2,3-dihydro-1H-perimidine (1) with [(cod)2Ni] and [(Ph3P)AuCl] yield yellow [(1)Ni(η4-cod)] (2) and colorless [(1)(Ph3P)AuCl]·3MeOH (3), respectively. In these transition metal complexes of nickel(0) and gold(I) 1 acts as a bidentate chelating ligand. Crystal structures of [(1)Ni(η4-cod)]·3THF (2a) and of cosolvent-free [(1)Ni(η4-cod)] (2) reveal a distorted tetrahedral environment of the nickel atom. The gold(I) atom in 3 exhibits a very long Au–Cl bond of 296.2(1) pm. In contrast to the nickel complexes, compound 3 shows strong agostic interactions between gold(I) and a methylene fragment.
