Corey-House Reaction is also called as 'coupling of alkyl halides with organo metallic compounds'. It is a better method than Wurtz reaction. An alkyl halides and a lithium dialkyl copper are reacted to give a higher hydrocarbon

$R'-X + R_2CuLi \rightarrow R-R' + R-Cu + LiX$

(R and R' may be same or different)
