An efficient, nickel-catalyzed direct reductive cross-coupling of equimolar amounts of alkyl halides with aryl halides in the presence of manganese is generally high-yielding, highly functional-group-tolerant, and easy to perform. The reaction appears to avoid the formation of intermediate organomanganese species, and a synergistic effect was found when a mixture of two ligands was employed.
