Evidence for a Ni-I active species in the catalytic cross-coupling of alkyl electrophiles. [Erratum to document cited in CA141:206650]

by Anderson, Thomas Jefferson; Jones, Gavin David; Vicic, David A.

On page 8100, the oxidn. potential for compd. 3 was incorrect. Compd. 3 exhibits one reversible oxidn. wave in the cyclic voltammogram at -1.316 V vs. Ag/Ag+ in THF soln. This correction has no effect on the conclusions of the paper since, as expected, compd. 3 can easily reduce alkyl halide.
