In this study, we present an investigation into various nickel phosphite and phosphite-phosphine complexes for use in the Mizoroki-Heck and Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reactions and the ammonia arylation reaction. In these coupling reactions, it was discovered that the Ni[P(OEt)3]4, (dppf)Ni[P(OPh)3]2, and (binap)Ni[P(OPh)3]2 catalysts were the most effective. In addition, an optimisation process for these catalytic systems as well as functional group compatibility are discussed.
