Abstract

We have discovered that the combination of Pd(OAc)2/o-chloranil can catalyze the direct C-H bond arylation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) with arylboroxins that occurs selectively at the K-region. The sequential integration of Pd-catalyzed direct arylation of PAHs and FeCl 3-mediated cyclodehydrogenation is effective in rapidly extending a parent PAH π-system with high directionality.
