A nickel-catalyzed carboxylation of aryl and vinyl chlorides proceeds under a CO2 pressure of 1 atm at room temperature in the presence of nickel catalysts and Mn powder as a reducing agent. Various aryl chlorides and vinyl chlorides could be converted to the corresponding carboxylic acid in good yields.
