Ruthenium Catalyzed meta-Carboxylation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The meta-carboxylation of arenes containing pyridine and other azine directing groups is reported. Using carbon tetrabromide as the C1 source, ruthenium(III) trichloride catalysis enables functionalization of the arene meta C-H position, affording carboxy methyl ester products after in situ reaction with methanol.
