Grignard reagents convert thiazoles, isoxazoles, oxazolines and thiazolines into N-vinylimines, β-amino-α,β-unsaturated ketones, tetrahydrooxazoles and tetrahydrothiazoles, respectively, under the influence of phosphine-ligated nickel species. The reaction characteristics and the uncatalyzed reactions are described.
