Abstract

An efficient route to engineer vinylarene structures by the PdII-catalyzed oxidative coupling of unactivated allylarenes with classic arenes was developed. The methodology features the use of unactivated allylarenes with no prefunctionalization and classic arenes without installed directing groups. A variety of vinylarenes and their saturated derivatives were obtained. They make a great couple: An efficient route to engineer vinylarene structures by PdII-catalyzed oxidative coupling of unactivated allylarenes with classic arenes is developed. The methodology features the use of unactivated allylarenes with no prefunctionalization and classic arenes without installed directing groups.
