Nickel-catalyzed asymmetric α-heteroarylation of ketones with fluorinated heteroarenes is reported via C–F bond activation. A series of ketones and 2-fluoropyridine derivatives with different functional groups proceed well to provide the corresponding products containing all-carbon quaternary stereocenters in good yields (up to 99% yield) and high ee values (up to 99% ee). In addition, drug molecule donepezil could also be compatible under the reaction conditions to afford late-stage diversification of pharmaceuticals.
