Modeling reduces nickel needed in catalytic reactions
Nickel catalysts are much less expensive than precious metal catalysts, but the large amounts of nickel catalyst used in many catalytic cross-coupling reactions still discourage industrial adoption. Over roughly the past two years, the vast majority of newly reported nickel-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions required 5 to 20 mole % of nickel catalyst. Neil K. Garg of the University of California, Los Angeles, grad student Nicholas A. Weires, and colleague Daniel D. Caspi of AbbVie have now . . .
