Summary of "A Bulky Chiral N-Heterocyclic Carbene Nickel Catalyst Enables Enantioselective C-H Functionalizations of Indoles and Pyrroles."

An enantioselective nickel(0)-catalyzed C-H functionalization of indoles and pyrroles without the need for the typical Lewis-basic directing groups is disclosed. The reaction provides access to valuable tetrahydropyridoindoles and tetrahydroindolizines in high yields and enantioselectivities under mild reaction conditions. The process is characterized by a clean endo-cyclization preference to yield the sought-after six-membered ring products. Key for the success of the activation and selectivity in the cyclization was the development of a novel chiral SIPr carbene ligand analogue with very bulky flanking groups.
