Kinetic studies on the reaction between [Ni(η3-C3H5)(triphos)]+ (triphos = {Ph2PCH2CH2}2-PPh) and [lutH]+ (lut = 2,6-dimethylpyridine) in MeCN show that initial protonation of the nickel or allyl is followed by equilibration of the proton between the two sites. Analysis of the data allows calculation of the basicities of the nickel and allyl sites. This, together with earlier work on [NiMe(triphos)]+, shows the nickel site is (2.5-79) × 106 times more basic when coordinated to allyl than to methyl.
