Iron-mediated C-H coupling of arenes and unactivated terminal alkenes directed by sulfur.


A sulfur-directed Fe(iii)-mediated ortho C-H coupling of arenes with unactivated terminal alkenes gives products of regioselective alkene chloroarylation. The novel mechanism involves redox-activation of the arene partner and alkene addition to the resultant aryl radical cation.
