Nickel/P(c-C5H9)3 (PCyp3) catalyst effects the addition reactions of fluoroarenes across alkynes, 1,3-dienes, and vinylarenes via the activation of C-H bonds over C-F bonds. The acidic C-H bonds located ortho to fluorine are exclusively activated to afford a range of alkenylated and alkylated fluoroarenes.
