A rhodium(II)-catalyzed reaction of newly prepared 4-acyl-1-sulfonyl-1,2,3-triazoles with benzene, and its derivatives, is investigated. Acceptor/acceptor carbenoids generated from 4-acyltriazoles undergo selective insertion at aromatic C(sp2)−H bonds in the presence of benzylic C(sp3)−H bonds to produce N-sulfonylenaminones.
