Iron nanoparticles, either formed in situ stabilized by 1,6-bis(diphenylphosphino)hexane or polyethylene glycol (PEG), or preformed stabilized by PEG, are excellent catalysts for the cross-coupling of aryl Grignard reagents with primary and secondary alkyl halides bearing beta-hydrogens and they also prove effective in a tandem cyclization/cross-coupling reaction.
