The final version of our manuscript describing the development of a toolkit of bench-stable Ni(0) precatalysts for diverse organic transformations is now in press in Angewandte Chemie. This toolkit enables reactions reliant on air-stable Ni(0) sources such as Ni(COD)2 to be performed without an inert atmosphere glovebox using standard Schleck techniques, offering a path forward for commercial scale-up of such catalytic methods. This work was made possible through a large network of collaborators at Scripps Research, USCD, Cornell, and Bristol Myers Squibb.
