An enantioselective Ni-catalyzed cross-coupling of N-hydroxyphthalimide esters with vinyl bromides is reported. The reaction proceeds under mild conditions and uses tetrakis(N,N-dimethylamino)ethylene as a terminal organic reductant. Good functional group tolerance is demonstrated, with over 20 examples of reactions that proceed with >90% ee.
