Total synthesis of several benzo[c]phenanthridine alkaloids was accomplished via an aryl-aryl coupling reaction using a novel Pd reagent prepared from Pd(OAc)2 DPPP, and Bu3P. This is a versatile method for the coupling reactions of not only aryl triflates and arenes but also aryl halides and arenes.
