For this month, Chemistry literature highlights will focus on electrochemically enabled cross coupling. Chao Li and co-workers recently published an outstanding use of electrochemistry for Ni-catalyzed dehydroxylative cross-coupling of aliphatic alcohols with aryl halides. A promising transformation given the natural abundance of alcohols. This methodology seems to be compatible with late-stage functionalization with a good tolerance for complex aliphatic alcohols and aryl halide
