New hydroacylation catalysts: Highly electron-rich N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) facilitate the intermolecular hydroacylation of unstrained olefins. This unprecedented organocatalytic coupling joins simple and abundant aldehydes and styrenes to yield valuable ketone products. EWG=electron-withdrawing group, EDG=electron-donating group.
