A Ball Milling Enabled Cross-Electrophile Coupling Online at Org Lett

Andy, Will and Jamie's paper on the use of a ball mill for cross-electrophile coupling is accepted and online at Organic Letters. This manuscript describes the ability to forge C(sp3)-C(sp2) bonds using nickel catalysis, without the requirement for rigourously inert conditions and independant of the form of zinc reductant.
