An unprecedented nickel-catalyzed decarbonylative silylation via CO extrusion intramolecular recombination fragment coupling of unstrained and nondirecting group-Assisted silyl ketones is described. The inexpensive and readily available catalyst performs under mild reaction conditions and enables the synthesis of structurally diverse arylsilanes, including heterocyclic and natural product derivatives.
