Let's get multicatalytic! A Ni 0 catalyst complexed with a biaryldialkyl monophosphine ligand facilitates C-C bond formation between styrenyl epoxides and aryl boronic acids (see scheme). X-ray analysis of a catalytically active nickel/ligand complex supports a redox pathway involving C sp 3-O bond activation. A variety of α-substituted alcohols were generated with good reaction efficiency by a multicatalytic sequence.
