Towards halichondrins

Posted by naturalproductman on May 12, 2015

I would call the vinyl halide coupling reaction with an aldehyde using chromium/nickel combination a Nozaki Hiyama Kishi coupling, but maybe because the author is one of the people in the named reaction, it wasn’t mentioned in the paper as the “NHK reaction”, but rather, a Ni/Cr-mediated reaction.
