AlMe3 can promote the oxidative cyclization of η2-alkene and η2-ketone on nickel(0) to give an intriguing nickel-aluminum dinuclear complex having a bridging Me group, which might be an intermediate for the nickel-catalyzed cycloisomerization of o-allylacetophenone or o-allylbenzophenone.

5-Hexenal derivatives can coordinate to a nickel(0) center, affording a series of η2:η2-5-hexenalnickel complex.
The η2:η2-5-enal complex undergoes intramolecular oxidative cyclization to form an oxanickelacyclopentane, and addition of Me3SiOTf results in drastic acceleration of the cyclization reaction.
