A RuH(2)(CO)(PPh(3))(3)-catalyzed regioselective arylation of aromatic ketones with arylboronates via carbon-hydrogen bond cleavage.

Abstract

When the reaction of aromatic ketones with arylboronates (arylboronic acid esters) using RuH(2)(CO)(PPh(3))(3) (3) as a catalyst was conducted in toluene, the corresponding arylation product was obtained in moderate yields. In this case, a nearly equivalent amount of a benzyl alcohol derived from a reduction of an aromatic ketone was also formed. The use of… (More)
