This week, in collaboration with the group of Prof. Julien Vantourout of ICBMS Lyon, we report complementary methods for E– and Z-selective kinetic isomerization of terminal alkenes under nickel catalysis. The two protocols are operationally simple to perform, employ commercially available reagents, and tolerate numerous synthetically useful functional groups. Congrats to all of the co-authors: Camille, Anne, Shenghua, and Zi-Qi. The project was initiated during Camille’s stint as a visiting student in Lyon earlier this year and was then wrapped up over the past few weeks to close out 2022 on a high note.
