Nickamine: a general catalyst for cross coupling of alkyl halides and direct alkylation
A nickel pincer complex, Nickamine, is shown to be an active catalyst for a large number of reactions including cross coupling of non-activated alkyl halides and direct C-H alkylation of alkynes and aromatic heterocycles. This work was rewarded by the 2011 Werner Prize from the Swiss Chemical Society.
