Pd(0)-catalyzed diarylation of sp3 C-H bond in (2-azaaryl)methanes.


A highly efficient and selective palladium-catalyzed diarylation of (2-azaaryl)methanes at the methyl group is described. Aryl chlorides proved reactive enough. A palladium η(3)-azaallyl intermediate has been identified on the basis of DFT studies.
