Ni-catalyzed Regioselective Reductive 1,3-Dialkenylation of Alkenes

Authors

Abstract

Dicarbofunctionalization is an important efficient synthetic technique for adding two chemical moieties across an alkene. Here, a novel method of reductive dicarbofunctionalization has been developed using a single alkenyl triflate as the electrophile, combined with an unactivated alkene. The reaction does not require an external auxiliary and proceeds with complete regioselectivity.
