The synthesis of (cAAC)2NiIICl2 (1) and its conversion into (cAAC)2Ni (2) through reduction is reported [cAAC = cyclic (alkyl)(amino)carbene]. Efficient reductive homocoupling of unactivated aryl chlorides and fluorides is catalyzed by 2 through C–Cl and C–F bond activation. Detailed high-level theoretical investigations are performed to understand the electronic and catalytic cycle of 2.
