A practical Lewis base catalyzed electrophilic chlorination of arenes and heterocycles.


A mild phosphine sulfide catalyzed electrophilic halogenation of arenes and heterocycles that utilizes inexpensive and readily available N-halosuccinimides is disclosed. This methodology is shown to efficiently chlorinate diverse aromatics, including simple arenes such as anthracene, and heterocycles such as indoles, pyrrolopyrimidines, and imidazoles… (More)
