The mechanism of the Ni-catalyzed silylation of aryl methyl ethers, especially the activation mode of the C−O bond, has been extensively investigated using density functional theory (DFT) methods. It was found that the silyl anion generated in situ and the cation K+ promote the C−O oxidative addition co-operatively. The former works as a ligand to Ni and the latter stabilizes the transition state via non-covalent interactions. More information can be found in the Full Paper by H. Yu, Y. Fu et al. (DOI: 10.1002/chem.201703266).
