Nozaki-Hiyama Coupling
Nozaki-Hiyama-Kishi Reaction

This coupling between halides and aldehydes is a chromium-induced redox reaction. A key advantage is the high chemoselectivity toward aldehydes. A disadvantage is the use of excess toxic chromium salts.

Newer methods allow the use of catalytic amounts chromium(II), which is regenerated by reduction with manganese or via electrochemical reduction.
