A Ni-catalyzed formal aminocarbonylation of primary and secondary unactivated aliphatic iodides with isocyanides provides alkyl amides via a selective monomigratory insertion of isocyanides with alkyl iodides, subsequent β-hydride elimination, and hydrolysis. The reaction features wide functional group tolerance under mild conditions.
