Metal-free arylation of benzene and pyridine promoted by amino-linked nitrogen heterocyclic carbenes.


An amino-linked nitrogen heterocyclic carbene (amino-NHC), 1-tBu, has been shown to mediate carbon-carbon coupling through the direct C-H functionalization of benzene and pyridine in the absence of a metal catalyst. Using EPR, the first spectroscopic evidence corroborating the single electron transfer mechanism for the metal-free carbon-carbon coupling… (More)
