Pd-catalyzed arylation/oxidation of benzylic C-H bond.


A palladium-catalyzed benzylic C-H arylation/oxidation reaction leading to diaryl ketones has been accomplished. The indispensable role of the bidentate system is disclosed for this sequential process. This chemistry offers a direct new access to a range of diarylketones.
