Aromatic couple makes new chemical bonds

Making carbon-carbon bonds continues to be an important strategy to synthesize useful pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and organic materials. Chemists have now expanded the scope of a Nobel Prize-winning carbon-carbon bond forming reaction by using aromatic esters and boronic acids as coupling partners in the presence of an economically and environmentally friendly nickel catalyst.
