A theoretical study on a tripodal alkoxydiphosphine (POP) ligand, which accelerates the nickel-catalyzed monosubstitution of a polyfluoroarene with an organozinc reagent, revealed that the alkoxy group and the diphosphine act independently to facilitate cooperation of a Lewis acid and a transition metal.
