Turn on the light: NiII complexes containing a 2-chloro-1,3-diketonate ligand undergo oxidative cleavage to produce carboxylic acids upon irradiation with UV light under aerobic conditions (see scheme). This reactivity, which involves the formation of reduced nickel species that activate dioxygen, has relevance to enzymatic systems that catalyze the oxidative cleavage of β-diketone substrates.
