Ni-Catalyzed Cross Coupling

From J. Am. Chem. Soc.:

Nickel-Catalyzed Carbon–Carbon Bond-Forming Reactions of Unactivated Tertiary Alkyl Halides: Suzuki Arylations

The Fu group has reported a Ni-catalyzed cross-coupling of tertiary alkyl halides and 9-BBN functionalized aryl species.  They essentially used conditions they had developed previously for primary and secondary halides, but employed a smaller ligand.
