Coupling of Alternating Current to Transition-Metal Catalysis: Examples of Nickel-Catalyzed Cross-Coupling

preprint
submitted on 06.10.2020, 08:35 and posted on 06.10.2020, 12:30 by Evgeniy Bortnikov, Sergey Semenov
This work demonstrates that periodic oxidation and reduction of a catalyst by alternating current enable otherwise unfavorable catalytic cycles. Nickel catalyzed amination, etherification, and esterification were universally enabled by alternating current with yields and selectivity strongly exciding these in the experiments with direct current (DC).
