Ni Catalysis

From JACS:

Decarbonylative C–H Coupling of Azoles and Aryl Esters: Unprecedented Nickel Catalysis and Application to the Synthesis of Muscoride A

Itami and coworkers report a surprising decarbonylative C-H cross-coupling reaction catalyzed by a easy-to-make nickel catalyst.  They use this method for the synthesis of the natural product Muscoride A.  This work was highlighted in Angewandte here:
