Oxidative C-H homodimerization of phenylacetamides

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A range of secondary and tertiary phenylacetamides undergo oxidative homodimerization to afford biaryls. The reaction proceeds under palladium catalysis in the presence of a copper cocatalyst and oxygen and is most effective for electron-rich substrates. © 2011 American Chemical Society.
