The first Ni-promoted prototype reaction based on the tandem C-H activation of heteroarenes with alkene isomerization is demonstrated, leading to the branched hydroheteroarylation products. Simultaneously, the reaction selectivity can be chemically switched to linear adducts through Ni-Al tandem catalysis.
