  • Nickel-catalyzed couplings of enals and alkynes utilizing triethylborane as the reducing agent illustrate a significant dependence on ligand structure. Simple variation of monodentate phosphines allows selective access to alkylative couplings or reductive cycloadditions, while further variation of reaction conditions provides clean access to reductive couplings and redox-neutral couplings.
