A method for palladium-catalyzed oxalyl amide-directed arylation of α-unsubstituted aliphatic amines with aryl iodides has been developed. A wide variety of aryl iodides are tolerated in this transformation, affording various γ-arylpropylamine derivatives. Heterocyclic iodides can also be competent reagents in this γ-C(sp(3))-H bonds transformation.
