Abstract

A rhenium complex, [ReBr(CO)3(thf)]2, catalyzed reactions of aromatic ketimines with aldehydes to give isobenzofuran derivatives in good to excellent yields. In contrast to ruthenium and rhodium catalysts, aldehydes, which are polar unsaturated molecules, inserted into the C-H bond after activation by the rhenium complex.
