The Cover Feature shows the first nickel‐catalyzed cross‐coupling of sodium sulfinates with aryl bromides. This method enables a straightforward synthesis of diarylsulfones with high functional group compatibility. The active nickel‐catalyst is generated in situ from the nickel(II) precursor NiBr2, an N‐heterocyclic carbene ligand, and triethylsilane as reducing agent. More information can be found in the Communication by G. Manolikakes et al.
