Microwave-assisted copper-catalyzed hydroxylation of aryl halides in water

A simple and efficient protocol for microwave-assisted copper-catalyzed hydroxylation of aryl halides is developed. A variety of phenols can be obtained in moderate to excellent yields of up to 95%.

Direct oxidation of the C(sp2)-C(sp3) bond from benzyltrimethylsilanes to phenols.

A novel pathway for direct conversion of benzylsilanes to phenols by oxidation with Na2S2O8 and oxygen is efficiently developed under mild and neutral conditions. The reaction shows good functional

Synthesis of phenols via fluoride-free oxidation of arylsilanes and arylmethoxysilanes.

The effects of arene substituents and fluoride promoters on this process show that while electron-deficient arenes can undergo direct oxidation from the hydrosilane, electron-rich aromatics benefit from silane activation via oxidation to the methoxysilane using homogeneous or heterogeneous transition metal catalysis.

One-step preparation of functionalized (E)-vinylsilanes from aldehydes.

Functionalized (E)-vinylsilanes have been prepared in one step from a wide range of aldehydes, via a chromium(II)-mediated olefination with novel dihalomethylsilane reagents, in moderate to excellent

Radical–anion coupling through reagent design: hydroxylation of aryl halides

Direct Hydroxylation and Amination of Arenes via Deprotonative Cupration.

Deprotonative directed ortho cupration of aromatic/heteroaromatic C-H bond and subsequent oxidation with t-BuOOH furnished functionalized phenols in high yields with high regio- and chemoselectivity.

Facile Synthesis of Halogen Decorated para-/meta-Hydroxy­benzoates by Iridium-Catalyzed Borylation and Oxidation

A facile preparation by iridium-catalyzed borylation of respective disubstituted benzoate esters followed by oxidation allows for the incorporation of halogens in the final hydroxybenzoates with substitution patterns not readily accessible by the traditional routes of aromatic functionalization.

Pd(II)-catalyzed hydroxylation of arenes with 1 atm of O(2) or air.

Pd(II)-catalyzed ortho-hydroxylation of variously substituted benzoic acids under 1 atm of O(2) or air is achieved under nonacidic conditions to support a direct oxygenation of aryl C-H bonds with molecular oxygen.

C-H activation/borylation/oxidation: a one-pot unified route to meta-substituted phenols bearing ortho-/para-directing groups.

An efficient one-pot C-H activation/borylation/oxidation protocol for the preparation of phenols is described. This method is particularly attractive for the generation of meta-substituted phenols
