For the coupling reaction of 2-methyl-1-naphthylmagnesium bromide with 1-bromo-2-methylnaphthalene to give 2,2-dimethyl-1,1-binaphthyl (13), nickel catalysts with monodentate phosphine ligands are more active than those with bidentate ligands. When (S)-1-[(R)-2-(diphenylphosphino)ferrocenyl]ethyl methyl ether (14) is used as the ligand at 15°C for 92hours, (R)-13 is obtained in 69% yield with an improved enantiomeric excess of 95% (Scheme 10).[‌56‌]
