This review provides an overview of the synthetic pathways, structures, and reactivity of various nickel(IV) complexes. The complexes are classified according to the various ligand types including sulfur, oxygen, nitrogen, and phosphorus donors. The main emphasis is on different ligand systems which stabilize Ni in higher oxidation state in the solid state and solution. The structural aspects of the complexes are briefly discussed. The possible applications of these nickel(IV) complexes are reviewed and future prospects are also highlighted. © 2011 Taylor & Francis.
