Highly nucleophilic vitamin B12-assisted nickel-catalysed reductive coupling of aryl halides and non-activated alkyl tosylates

Abstract

Reductive cross-coupling of aryl halides with ubiquitous alkyl tosylates was developed using a combination of nickel and vitamin B12 catalysts. The tosylate was activated by reduced vitamin B12 to form alkyl cobalt(III) which served as a good alkylating agent for aryl-nickel species, leading to the C(sp3)–C(sp2) bond formation.
