Olefin refinement is expensive in part due to the cost of the energy required to perform cryogenic distillation. One way to avoid this expensive step is via an electrochemical procedure based on nickel (bis)dithiolene's ability to reversibly bind ethylene. However, there remains many open questions on the mechanism of this reaction. This work proposes a new route to the initial binding of ethylene by the nickel complex.
