Carbon–Fluorine Reductive Elimination from Nickel(III) Complexes #chempaperaday 297

This is "the first direct evidence of a C-F reductive elimination from a 1st row transition metal fluoride complex". They were able to structurally characterize one of these complexes and provide more evidence for the proposed Ni(III) intermediates. 

A fantastic paper and study. The barrier for reductive elimination of Ni-F was also found to be less than the Pd-F complexes. I am glad nickel is getting more and more attention. I like octahedral nickel complexes and I think we will see more of those in the future.
